    Thumbs down Litter and Litters?

    litter
    litters??? (I don't think that makes sense...)
    garbage
    garbages???

    Put in a sentence:

    There are some litters out there.

    There are garbages everywhere.

    Default Re: Litter and Litters?

    Litter is an uncountable noun, so it is always singular:

    There's too much litter.

    Look at all this litter. Someone should pick it up.

    Does your city have a lot of litter?

    EXCEPT:

    When you use litter in a different meaning, such as a litter of kittens (when a cat has babies).

    My cat is five years old and she has had three litters. (litters of kittens are countable)

    I agree with Mr. Brain Boyd. However, if litter, as a verb, is used with third person singlers, i.e. he, she or it, it takes 's'. For instance "I never litter. But my child litters a lot."Raveendra
