Let's say a guy recently quit one job and got a new job.
a) "He recently changed job."
b) "He recently changed jobs."
c) "He recently changed one job a new job."
Could anyone of those be free of errors?
For a phrase like "change X", where the dumping of one instance of "X" and acquiring another instance of X is intended, if "X" is some suitable countable noun phrase, then "X" could be used in the singular form WITHOUT an article, besides the plural form?
According to bhai's rule, the following is acceptable English?
a) "Age 10 is too early to change school."
b) "The students want to change teacher."
c) "It is time to change car."
I don't find the singular acceptable -- not in the first post and not in the more recent one.
American difference? She changed job recently would be entirely unnatural.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
The plural is more common, but I find "change job/teacher/school" entirely natural. I have to say that I don't much like "change car" (or "cars" for that matter), I would prefer "change the car".
