Hi! I'm Sam from BBC Learning English. And today, let's look at how we can change adjectives into nouns when talking about groups of people in general.
I'm from England and I can talk about people from my country in two ways:
'English people talk about the weather a lot,' where I use the adjective English to describe the noun people.
Or I can take the adjective English and turn it into a noun with the: 'The English talk about the weather a lot.'
You can use this rule to talk about other groups of people as well. For example: The rich have more than the poor.
But be careful! Yes, the groups of people are plural, and yes the verb is plural, but we don't add 's' to the end of these words.
但要注意的是，某个群体是复数，所以动词也要用复数形式，但这些名词后面不加 's' .
