Czenglish

Money are vs. money is

WRONG: Money are so important to me.
RIGHT: Money is so important to me.

This week’s Czenglish mistake is a very simple one but a very important one – because it concerns money!

Counting money is a good thing, right? If you have to count the money in your wallet, it means there is a lot of it. Unless you just have a lot of 1kc coins!

But money is uncountable in English. We never say monies and we always use it with a singular noun. So we don’t say ‘Money are important’, or ‘I don’t have many money’ but instead ‘Money is important’ and ‘I don’t have much money.’

The same is true of the slang word ‘cash’ too. It is also uncountable. For example, ‘Cash is available in the ATM.”
