According to google search, "a newcomers" is used in many websites.

is it singular or plural?

And if it's plural, why do we add a in front of it?


When I searched "a newcomers" (no apostrophe) newcomers was always being used as part of compound noun, eg. "a newcomers guide" = "a guide for newcomers".

Therefore the "a" is appropriate because it can refer to a singular noun, that is being described as for newcomers.
