    Singular / Plural

    pudding / jelly
    When we are talking about different kinds or when they are putting in some cups or bowls, we use plural forms. Otherwise it should be in singular forms.

    ice lolly
    We use plural form when we have more than one.

    Is my concept correct?

    Thanks

    Re: Singular / Plural

    In general, yes. I must admit though that I have never heard of "ice lolly".

    I am not a teacher.

    Lolly is short for lollipop.
