    Question Story and Stories in BOOK

    Hi,

    If that is a book named as Story, and other book named as Stories,

    what is the exact meaning of both book?

    Is Stories means "Many Story"?

    I thought the Stories may not means "Many Story", but I don't know how to find the exact meaning.

    Thanks.

    I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, but stories is the plural of story.

    I known the Stories is the plural of Story. But I want to know is that Stories just simply translated to "Plural"?

    Maybe I should use another way to express my idea.

    I saw an article use "untold story" to describe a story, which story we never heard. And another article use "untold stories" to describe endless story.

    That is the point, why "untold stories" means "endless story"?
    Should I translated it to "many untold stories" or "much untold stories"?

    "Untold stories" doesn't mean "endless story" it means "many untold stories."
