Does anyone share this pet peeve of mine where you notice how people use plural when they should use singular? For example someone has a reason not to do something and they'll say I've got reasons... or someone will say I have plans about that, you don't have plans ffs, you a have plan and so on... It's common in everyday speech, but much more present in novels which is why I rant. Edit: I have a decent example finally, as I said there's plenty of them just that I didn't bother rembemering them, now I did for this thread. It's in HP x High school DxD fanfic "FILFY Teacher" : Rias talks to someone saying how there were several powerful sacred gears in their territory. You see here! There were not several gears but only two, you can't say several for two or a couple - see it has it's own number word, and only one was powerful, the other one average.
