    Default Re: a large number of and large numbers of

    /A learner/

    a large amount of ~ singular

    a large amounts of ~ plural

    "large numbers of" and "a large number of"could be wrong use?


    In addition

    Should this have been said by way

    Are there any differences between a large amount of and large amounts of?
