1. They work on Saturday mornings.
2. They work in the mornings.

Is the use of plural nouns, mornings, in the sentences above grammatical?

  • English Grammar -

    In (1) it is OK to use the plural "mornings" to distinguish the situation from working on one or a few Saturday mornings only.

    In (2), use of the plural is ungrammatical and not advised. It would imply that they work every morning, with no holidays, weekends or vacations.
