    some ordering schema

    I've seen this in a formal passage. Using 'schema' as a singular countable noun after 'some.'! Is it possible?
    .... according to some ordering schema.

    Re: some ordering schema

    'Schema' is singular - the plural is 'schemata'.

    A singular noun can follow 'some': My daughter will make some man very happy.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
