    Default sport and sports

    Are these sentences right?

    Basketball is a sport..

    Do you do any sport?

    Do you do any sports?

    When will I use the sport with an "s" and the one without? Thanks!

    Default Re: sport and sports

    Basketball is a sport.. = That would be right, but take off a period if you are ending the sentence. Or if it elipses, then add a period.

    Do you do any sport? = If you only want to refer to one sport, put "a" where "any" is. (Also, a better verb would be "play." Do you play a sport?)

    Do you do any sports? = This is also correct.

    It depends on two things, if it is plural, and what word is used with it.

    a sport
    sports
    that sport
    this sport
    these sports
    those sports
    the sport
    the sports

    Hope I didn't confuse you with "the sports" because in that case, it depends on if it is plural or not.

    PLURAL EXAMPLE: At my school, most of the sports are in the fall season.

    SINGULAR EXAMPLE: For me, the sport I enjoy most is tennis.

    You can also say 'the sports I enjoy most are tennis and football'.
