Should nouns before 'except', 'other than' and 'but' be plural or singular? I have given some example sentences.
1- I don't have any friend(s) but/except/other than you.
2- I have no friend(s) but/except/other than you.
3- I don't have a friend except/but you.
I think plural nouns are more common in this case. Could any native speakers please answer this question for me?
