    text

    Hello
    Would you please tell me which one is correct "text" or "texts"? For example, "I receive many commercial text(s) every day".
    Thank you

    "Text" is singular. "Texts" is plural. If you receive many of them every day, which one do you think is appropriate?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: text

    I thought "text" might be an uncountable noun... If it is countable, of course "texts" is appropriate for this example.
    Thank you

    Re: text

    When referring to a "text message" or "SMS", it is countable.
