This site is created and run under a Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License by Peter Shanks The English noun people has two distinct fields of application: as a singular noun, a group of humans, either with unspecified traits, or specific characteristics (e.g. the people of Spain or the people of the Plains). as an irregular plural noun, people is the suppletive plural of person. However, the word persons is sometimes used in place of people, especially when it would be ambiguous with its collective sense (e.g. missing persons instead of people).
