    There is more than one way/are more than one way

    Is it possible to say both:

    "There is more than one way to say this."

    "There are more than one way to say this."

    Re: There is more than one way/are more than one way

    The second doesn't do it for me.

    Re: There is more than one way/are more than one way

    Do you mean that you don't like it or that it's grammatically incorrect?

    If so, why?

    Thanks

    The first is fine.

    The second would need rephrasing as "There are more ways than one to say this" if you want to use "are".
