    grammatical number - Is the word "data" now considered singular, or still plural?
  • jamesh

    I know that the singular of data is datum. I know that data is a plural.

    However, common usage of the word "data" suggests it is used as a "collection of data".

    Here is [the collection of] data.

    In which case, is the word data now a singular again, or still the plural? If so, what is the correct use of the word data and datum now?
