    people and person

    Are there any imply meanings behind people and person?
    Are there any specific occasions where we can not use them?

    Re: people and person

    I don't understand your first question. For one thing, 'people' is plural and 'person' is singular.

    Look at the Similar Threads below. You may understand the usage better after reading them.
