Anonymous:Hi. When can we use the words "man" and "men"? Can they be used in place of each other?
'Man' works like any other countable noun:
One man, two men
One bicycle, two bicycles.

Anonymous:Hi. Thank you. I think the word "man" can refer to something to the "humankind." I tink we can use either word in limited contexts in place of each other.
Nonetheless, their numbers remain different:
Men have lived on Earth for more than a million years.
Man has lived on Earth for more than a million years.
