Do you have a good vocabulary?


In English we normally add an ‘s’ to a noun to make it plural. For example, you might have more than one television at home. Perhaps you have two or more televisions.

However, we normally use the word ‘vocabulary’ in the singular (and not ‘vocabularies’) when we mean ‘words’ and ‘phrases’.

For example: Reading newspapers and magazines can help you to pick up a lot of vocabulary.
