    An intense dynamics

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct? Can we use the singular article 'an' with the plural noun 'dynamics'?

    "Not only is there an intense dynamics of international recognition and opening up to the world..."

    Welcome to the forums, Julieri.

    The noun 'dynamic' should be singular in that sentence.

    Re: An intense dynamics

    Can you think of an example where you can use a singular article with a plural noun?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
