Can the noun information be plural? Is it correct to write "the following information are"?
Approved answer (verified by )
Information is always singular.
But I find it interesting that you asked. Is it different in your language?

At least in German we differ Information (singular) and Informationen (plural).

So as in portuguese.

We have "Informação" (Singular) and "Informações" (Plural).

Thanks anyway!
In french as well we make a distinction between Une information (singular) and Des informations (plural).

The same is in Polish: informacja (Sg) and informacje (Pl) Emotion: smile

English seems to be stand out Emotion: wink
In Czech informationsalso are Emotion: smile
In arabic, we also distinguish between the use of single and plural information.

I hop that I can master English and can understand such lingual differences Emotion: sad

Can you please suggest something?
In Portuguese we can use as singular or plural meaning. Informação >> singular (uma informação, a informação (= "an information", "the information"). Informações >> plural (umas informações, as informações (= "informations", "the informations").
