    culture

    Which one is correct?
    Do they all mean different things? kind should be plural right because there's many in front of "kind" but if kind is plural then culture doesn't need to be pluralized too. or does it?

    In this society there are many kinds of cultures

    Re: culture

    many kinds of cultures <count noun>
    many kinds of culture <non-count noun>
    many kind of cultures

    Does that help?

    Re: culture

    Welcome, Niall Beag.

    Many kinds of culture still sounds awkward, grammatical, but awkward. I prefer, more than one culture.

    What are your thoughts?
