Is "monies" and "moneys" the same? If not, how do we know which form to use?
According to various websites, both are possible plurals of money, but then "money" is also the plural of money! Some show "sums of money" to be the plural.
Personally, I have always used "monies" if I've needed a plural, ie "The monies collected by a bank from its users are invested in various ways".
However, "The money collected by a bank......." would be equally understandable. Not very helpful, I realise, but English has never been known to be logical.
I'm sure other users will have various views on this!
PS - Your question should have been "ARE moneys and monies the same?"
