This article is about the grammatical concept of number. For help with numbers in Spanish, see Numbers.

The concept of number in a language's grammar has to do with how many people are involved. For example I went is singular in number and We went is plural in number. Some languages have several different numbers such as singular, dual, and plural (3 or more). In both Spanish and English, there are only two numbers-- singular and plural.

In Spanish number in conjunction with gender affects nouns and adjectives, in conjunction with person it affects personal pronouns, finite verbs, and in conjunction with both gender and person it affects possessive adjectives and pronouns.

Singular

Dealing with one person or object.

Plural

Having to do with two or more people or objects.
