- For Teachers
Recent research indicated that it actually has a strong effect on the viewer.
My teacher told me research is uncountable. when i looked it up in the dictionary it says uncountable but it says that it's a plural noun researches.
so can I say recent researches.
because what i want to say is lots of people has done projects about it not one man .
THANKS IN ADVANCE.
'researches' as the plural noun is used when referring to the many individual studies, or periods of research, that a scientist has engaged in:
"His pathological researches were published in official reports."
When referring to many scientists who have researched the same area, you would say, "Recent research.." If you want to make it clear that this is not just one piece of research, then 'Recent research studies...'
I would avoid using the plural form though - much better to say, "His research studies were published in official reports."
I can't remember the last (of the rare occasions) when I've seen the plural form used.
Maybe you should write your words a little bigger.
