Mensagem: 

The fixed expression many a/an... is more formal than the single word many, and it is much less common. Many a/an... is used mainly in literary writing and newspapers. Like many, many a/an... is used to indicate a large number of something. However, it takes a singular noun, which can be followed by a singular verb.
