The word ‘Stuff’ is being used in everyday conversation to mean ‘things’, ‘work’, etc.

I wonder, do people say stuff(s) to mean more than one thing?

For instance:

Good Stuff(s) you have there; Your stuff (‘work’ that one produced) is good.

It is used like that, but the plural form is also ‘stuff’ - never ‘stuffs’.

The only time ‘stuffs’ is correct is when it is used as a verb: She stuffs the cushion before sewing the final edge.


I would say that ‘stuff’ doesn’t have a plural form. It’s just a mass noun like ‘information’. You can say ‘there is a lot of information available’ which means there are lots of different pieces of information. It’s like ‘luggage’ which doesn’t have a plural form either.[YSaerTTEW443543]

Thanks Torsten, that’s really what I meant. Though actually, thinking about it later, I realised that it might be worth mentioning the compound word ‘foodstuffs’.

It’s not quite an ‘exception to the rule’ because it is different to the word ‘stuff’ - but as the second syllable is so close to stuff, it might be prudent to point out that this is one case where you would see what might be thought of as a ‘plural’.
