    Equipment / equipments

    Hi,

    can the word 'equipment' be used as follows (in the plural):

    office equipments

    transport equipments

    I thought equipment never took an 's'.

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    ***not a teacher***
    No, we haven't got any plural form with 's' for this noun. You can say, "some equipment", "lots of equipment", or " a piece of equipment".
