Those are great news!

Those are great news! <-----Sentence added to post by moderator (Florentia52)-----> Is the sentence in the title of this thread correct? Google seems to show many hits for that, but I'm not sure whether it is an appropriate usage. Could anyone help me? Thanks in advance!  


Senior Member

I've only ever heard the singular. 'That's great news' or 'This is good news.'  


"News" is a collective noun which is never plural, and which has no plural. So "Those are great news" is definitely incorrect.  


As we continually advise learners, Google is not an authority on English or anything else. It faithfully indexes what others have written, regardless of whether they are knowledgeable, stupid or completely out of their depth. Often, it's just the writing of uninformed non-native speakers. Not all English words ending in 's' are plural. "News," like "stress," "bus," "fuss," etc. is one that is not.

Is 'this great news' correct?

"I thank God for this great news . I am finally vindicated." As 'news' is uncountable, is the part in bold correct? Should it be 'this piece of great news'? Thanks.  


It's fine as is.  


Junior member.

'News' can be used with or without partitives...this news...this piece/item of news etc The partitives are more effective in plural forms...these pieces of good news  

Cambridge Dictionary

We use the uncountable noun news to mean ‘information or reports about recent events’. It takes a singular verb:

The news is good about Mary. The doctors are very happy about her progress.
Not: The news are good about Mary .
Do you have any news of your sister? How is she these days?
I’ve got some news for you – I’m getting married!
Not: I’ve got a news for you …

If we want to talk about news as an individual thing, we can use bit of, piece of or item of (more formal):

I heard a couple of interesting pieces of news the other day about the company’s plans for expansion.
An item of news caught her eye in the newspaper. It was about a child who was missing.

We say the news when we refer to the television or radio programme that gives reports of recent events:

I always watch the news on CNN before I go to bed.

“News is” or “news are” – singular or plural?

these a great news

Several English words end with an “s” in their singular form. Most of these don’t pose any problem; few people would say “the kiss were beautiful” instead of “the kiss was beautiful”. However, there are a few that commonly cause problems:

Although the equivalent expression in many languages would be in the plural, “news” is a singular noun, so you should say:

Oddly enough, “news” is uncountable, which means that not only is it followed by a singular verb, but you also cannot say “a news”:

Unlike “news”, “lens” is countable, so you can try to remember that if there can be “two lenses”, there must also be “one lens”:

To make things even more confusing, the plural of “series” is also series. You should therefore use a singular verb if you speak about one particular series, e.g. “my favourite TV series has been cancelled”, and a plural verb if you speak about several series at a time, e.g. “all the series of the Unknown Channel are good”.

A “bellows” is an instrument used for blowing air. Like “series”, the plural of “bellows” is also “bellows”, so you have to use a singular verb when speaking about one bellows and a plural verb when speaking about more than one.

Measles is a disease, and as you have probably noticed from the previous sentence, the word is in the singular:

Quite naturally, it is uncountable, i.e. you cannot have “two measles”.

Plural nouns that learners think are singular

In addition to the words above, there are a few words which only have a plural form and might be confusing for some learners if the equivalent expression in their mother tongue is in the singular:

jeans, tights, trousers, pants

All this hosiery is used only in the plural (usually because they come in pairs — for both legs — and the singular form has died out):

Not to be confused with “thongs”, the plural of “thong” which is a type of underwear, “tongs” are the same case as above:
