Mensagem:  "For your information vogues is the plural form of vogue (newest version of the Encarta dictionary)" Good for Encarta – I’ve never heard it and won’t be holding my breath in the expectation – is Encarta compiled from Scrabble ® championships? "true is an adjective, it's also an adverb, and since true is also a noun can't it have a plural form (see Encarta dictionary online)" Is it perhaps one of the many nouns that do not have plural forms (or have them only in unusual or very particular circumstances)? As a native speaker, I must confess that I have never heard or encountered “trues” before this. "Or is true an uncountable noun? Just FIY I ran a search on google.com on the word "trues" (only in English) and it returned 13,800 results for the word trues. Can you tell me why?" Might it be the case that some part of the total information on the internet is not necessarily worth the digital space it occupies? Sounds like google would have plenty of entrties for "reds herring" too.
