Not sure how to spell a word? Hesitate no longer.

People or Persons?

Your choice!


Exemple : ‘’There are a lot of people waiting in the queue.’’

"People" and "persons" are often confused. Generally speaking "people" is the correct way to express the plural of "person."


Exemple : ‘’Any persons found with contraband substances will be asked to leave.’’

"Persons" is very occasionally used but this is only in extremely formal contexts.
