Hullo afresh !
While I was reading one of my English books entitled : 'University Grammar of English ' , I came across this piece of information :
Name of country : (( China , Japan ))
Adjective : (( Chinese , Japanese ))
Singular : (( a Chinese , a Japanese ))
Plural : (( Chinese , Japanese ))
Plural : (( The Chinese , The Japanese ))
Recently , I've read in another English book , published in Oxford , that we can't say : a Japanese* , a Chinese* … !!
I'm totally confused . Shall I trust the first or the second ?? or both of them are correct ?? …. Could you help me in this ??
Thanks in advance
