What's the difference between 'emotion' and 'emotions'? Hi, I wonder what the differences between 'emotion' and 'emotions' are. If possible, could you give me examples? Thanks a lot.

Hi Jacqueline, "Emotions" is in the plural form while "emotion" is in the singular form. Example: The was a surge of emotion while he recounted the accident. (Singular) The counsellor have a lecture on various emotions. (Plural) Hope this helps. Cheers, Lance

Sure. Non-count: "He said it with a lot of emotion". This sentence means that he is feeling ONE emotion very strongly while he speaks. Countable: "He felt several emotions, but anger was the strongest" Here, he feels MORE THAN ONE emotion. Hope that helps.
