(1b) Sometimes, I hear some beautiful sounds my neighbor makes with his computer software.

(2a) When I got into my house, I heard some strange noise from upstairs.

(2b) When I got into my house, I heard some strange noises from upstairs.

I am not sure which form of the nouns is correct. Please help me. Thank you very much for your time and help.

  • We would say some noises (plural), but a noise (singular). It depends on whether you mean one kind of sound or several different ones. Oct 24, 2020 at 8:36

1a doesn't really make much sense at all.

1b makes complete sense, that is correct.

2a could be correct? It may not be grammatically correct, but I think it could pass as understandable if you were to say it.

2b makes complete sense as well, and it is correct. Out of 2a and 2b, use this one.
