Human as a word itself is referring to people is general. So can it be in plural form which is 'humans'?

It's like making something that is already plural another plural such as 'peoples'.

I would say "human beings"


i would humens


There is a difference between the words human and people. People is a collective noun, so it already refers to more than one person. 

Human is a descriptive adjective or a noun. As a noun, it is singular and refers to one human being. So yes, you can say "humans", as in : He is a human; they are humans.

But, when using it as an adjective, you would always use the singular form, human. Ex: We are all members of the human race.

Hope that helps!






Its humen




I honestly think you should use the word human for both singular and plural as in "he is a human " "they are human "

Saying it may sound weird but I think 85% that this is the right answer


But do we ever use an apostrophe after humans? For example when referring to something all humans share would it be humans'?
