    "Feet" is the plural form of "foot".

    one foot
    two feet
    three feet
    etc.

    yaghoob, you ask a lot of questions about the meanings of words without apparently having made any effort to look them up in dictionaries.

    I have told you this before.

    However, when giving someone's height, people will say six foot tall.

    In the U.S. we would say "The guy is six feet tall" but "He's a six-foot-tall guy."

    Weird.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
