    Does the sentence "I'm proud to be British for an abundant of reason" work?

    Is "an abundant" grammatically correct? Because the word abundant is only an adjective.

    Context:

    I'm proud to be British for an abundant of reason. We have been the most powerful country in the world when the British empire was around.

    "I'm proud to be British for an abundant of reason. We have been the most powerful country in the world when the British empire was around."
    This is incorrect. Where did you find it?

    Google. Since it is a British thing, I think it might have a good grammar.

    You still think it's correct, even after reading bhaisahab's reply?
