    My wages is/are too small/little.

    1. My wages is too small

    2. My wages are too small.


    Which one is correct? My dictionary says wage is followed by a singular verb and I wonder it is same to

    wages.


    3. My wage is to little.


    I also wonder if it is possible to use little instead.



    Thank you.

    Which one is correct? My dictionary says "wage" is followed by a singular verb (I don't think you mean verb, do you?) and I wonder if it is the same to for "wages".

    3. My wage is too little.

    I also wonder if it is possible to use "little" instead.

    Thank you.
    None of them are very natural. We normally refer to wages as being "high" or "low". Please see my notes in red above.
