woman vs women : Common Errors in English

About woman vs women

The singular “woman” probably gets mixed up with the plural “women” because although both are spelled with an O in the first syllable; only the pronunciation of the O really differentiates them. Just remember that this word is treated no differently than “man” (one person) and “men” (more than one person). A woman is a woman—never a women.

woman Meaning(s)

  • (n) an adult female person (as opposed to a man)
  • (n) a female person who plays a significant role (wife or mistress or girlfriend) in the life of a particular man
  • (n) a human female employed to do housework
  • (n) women as a class
