Hi guys,

Is the expression "a clothes" correct in grammar?

(Ex. "He was putting a clothes on the hanger.")

It's somewhat confusing to me.

No, say 'some clothes'.

Not really.

He was putting "an article of clothing" or "a piece of clothing" would work. He was hanging up the clothes. (That implies more than one thing.)

thanks Clive,

Still I have a question.

If I say "some clothes", does that also mean "a piece of clothes" like a dress?

thanks again~

I found this in my dictionary about the word, clothes.

######################################################
There is no singular form of clothes. You have to say a piece of clothing, an article of clothing (formal), or an item of clothing (formal): They found a piece of clothing in the bushes.

So, A clothes will not be correct.

Hope it will help you.
