Glass or glasses?
I just watched TV and heard a Chinese reporter refering windows smashed in a riot in East Turkistan as 'glasses were broken'. I want to know if he misused 'glasses' and it should have been 'glass was broken'?
Re: Glass or glasses?
When referring to broken windows, 'glass' is correct, it is uncountable. As Eden Darien has said 'glasses' are optical aids that people wear, also things that we drink out of made from glass.
