1. Why are you giving me a warnings?
2. Did you hear warning announced all over the city?
3. I Can't take any more warnings.

Are these all right? Do all the forms fit well in their own sentence?

Joe -

You already know that the most common way to make a plural in English, is to add an "s". Dog - dogs, storm - storms, warning - warnings.

So if a word is plural do we use "a"? You know that, too.

So, you actually already know the answer to your questions!! It isn't just a question of "rules", it's commonsense as well: - you can't put an "a" in front of a plural word... because it wouldn't make sense.

Just have a little more confidence: you already know so many rules that you are well qualified to be able to see some errors for yourself! (If you make a mistake and work it out for yourself, I *promise* you will never make that same mistake again.)

Thank you Romany, for your concern and everything. And I can see that how you might feel as I am also a grown up with a brain that is not less than others. But what is so blocking me completely that even a child can get but i can't?
Must I have learned it wrongly too early and too long? It's all tangled up in a way that I can't build a new bowl, but patching up is all my brain can do.
I am learning French and I can see how easily my brain coincide with ideas and the new language. But with English my brain just can't get brake through.

Be patient and help me as you used to have been. I might have to live like this until I die, but there is something that won't let me give up.

I don't like this kind of conversion but since you helped a lot. It's useless to talk but I like Drag0nspeaker's attitude. He just helps with all his might, even he doesn't like the person much and even he has to say thousand times.

However, Thank you anyway.
