    singulare tantum

    Please could you teach me what is the meaning of singulare tantum in the following context:

    "As physicist Erwin Schrodinger put it, "Mind by its very nature is a singulare tantum. I should say: the overall number of minds is just one.""

    Thank you for your time and help.

    Re: singulare tantum

    It means a word which only exists in the singular, no plural form.
