Is my encarta dictionary wrong or am I wrong. A book I was teaching had the phrase “There are some corns” It also had “There are some lettuces” I alway thought you would have to say “There is some corn” but when I checked my encarta dictionary it stated that the plural noun of corn is corns. Same with lettuce and milk, the dictionary states that the plural of these nouns are lettuces and milks.
To say “there are some corns” seems completely wrong to me. If any of the Forumosan grammar experts could help me out I would appreciate it. Is it okay to say “there are some corns”; “there are some milks” or “there are some lettuces”?
It just seems wrong to me but I am willing to stand corrected.
