Some Important Advanced Grammar Rules of Nouns

Rule : 1.

Friends! There are some nouns whose meaning changes from singular to plural. Following is the list of some such noun words that you should try to understand :

Surroundingआसपास काSurroundingsपरिवेश
Mannerतरीका Mannersव्यवहार
Contentसंतुष्ट Contentsअन्तर्वस्तु

For Example :

02.The beautiful surrounding of the hotel is worth visiting.The beautiful surroundings of the hotel is worth visiting.

Read the above examples carefully :

  • In the 01. Sentence, The pages of the book are not being talked about here. See in the table that papers mean documents like “Keep your papers ready for registration.” It is correct to use paper (material noun) in place of papers in this sentence.
  • In the 02. Sentence, It is correct to use surroundings in place of surrounding in this sentence. As it is clear from the table of their meanings.

Rule : 2.

Friends! There are also some nouns that have only one meaning in the singular but two meanings in the Plural. The list of such noun words is given below, which you should understand carefully :

When we mention any one person or thing from a group of people or objects, For this follow the structure given below :

One of + the + plural noun + singular verb + …….

We can say that the noun joining “one of” is always in the plural. like :

For Example :

01.One of the student is very intelligent.One of the students is very intelligent.

Rule : 5.

When a noun with a preposition is associated with the same noun. Thus, connected nouns are always used singularly. like :

door to by day.
success after success.row upon row.

For Example :

01.How can you commit mistakes after mistake ?How can you commit mistake after mistake ?
02.Now I am getting success after successes.Now I am getting success after success.

Rules : 6.

Using adjectives as nouns means that whenever we talk about people having the same characteristics, traits or qualities, we can use adjectives instead of nouns.

For this we can put “the” before adjective. This makes it a plural common noun. The plural verb is always used with it.

The RichAll rich people.
The poorAll poor people
The unemployedAll unemployed
The illiterateAll illiterate people

For Example :

01.Rich peoples should help poors.The Rich should help the poor.
  • The above example uses The Rich instead of the rich people and The Poor instead of the poor people. Here The Rich means : All rich people.
