I want to ask about this specific construction:
Do you see any error message?
Do you see any error messages?
Are they both grammatically correct? My grammar book says that any should only be used with uncountable or plural nouns.
However, from Is “any” also used with plurals?, the top answer says that it still depends on context. I also checked the related thread and they all say the same. “Any requirement” or “any requirements” and Any individual or any individuals?
Can the first one mean error message if there is already a specific error message in mind?
While the send one can mean any error message?
The problem is, I cannot find grammar books or webpages that says that this is allowed.
Finally, from Any (Learner's Dictionary), I can see that any was used with singular nouns. You haven't eaten any salad. You can return the product if any defect appears within the first six months.
They are all normal sentences though. Do any have different rules when in questions?
