    Re: there are no crowds

    There are no crowds.
    Please remember to phrase your questions correctly, with a capital letter to start, and a question mark at the end of the sentence.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    That's assuming the phrase is intended as a sentence.
    "There are crowds of pigeons in the square, but there are not crowds of people."

    Yes, how about "There are no crowds", is it correct?

    That's not natural. Say "no crowds" there.

    Re: there are no crowds

    Remember to put a space after every full stop, comma, question mark and exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
