    Detail vs details

    Hey!

    What is the difference between "detail" and "details". When to use which? The usage of both is confusing.

    Re: Detail vs details

    If you explain something thoroughly, you go into detail or details - there's not nuch difference there. Otherwise, the difference is usually what the difference between singular and plural form is, Can you give some concrete examples of when you have been confused?
