Here at The Words Project, we think it’s ludicrous that amends has its own entry in the dictionary. Plurals are supposed to be lumped in with the entry for the singular form and amends is simply the plural of amend. (See amend.)

Nevertheless, we are not ones for rocking the boat, screwing with tradition or messing around with the dictionary. Therefore, because most dictionaries include separate entries for amend and amends, we will too.

The plural noun amends means more than one amend (duh!), i.e., multiple noons. For example, you might say that a week includes seven amends.

If that doesn’t make any sense to you, you didn’t see amend, now did you? Jeez, some people just won’t listen to a word you say! Lazy bastards!
