a series or ???
is it ok if we write A SERIES OF BOOKS??
while as i know that A si followed by a singular noun
and how 'bout SERIES of BOOKS, it's a double plural noun.
thx 4 the explanation..
Re: a series or ???
One of the definitions for "series" is as follows:
A succession of usually continuously numbered issues or volumes of a publication, published with related authors or subjects and similar formats.
A series of articles
A series of papers
A series of books or--in publishing--a book series
Note the last example, "a book series", 'book' is singular because it functions as an adjective. Only nouns takes plural -s.
