    Re: many

    It means only one reason or more than it?

    Re: many

    Got it. I was confused about the word "some". Would "for some reasons" be incorrect?

    Re: many

    Yes. If you know the reasons you say 'I hate London for several reasons' before going on to specify them.

    If you don't know why something doesn't work (as in emsr2d2's case) you say 'for some (unknown) reason' ('unknown' is optional).

    You might have meant "context" but that doesn't mean the same as "discussion".

    Many windows
    Many floors
    Many people
    Many stores
    Many streets
    And many bangings
    Many whistles
    Many clangings
    Many,many,many,many-
    Many of everything,many of any.
