I want to make sentence fulfilling this condition:

Three groups consist of different people in each, let's say "A people", "B people, "C people"

Is it,

"Three people group"


"Three people groups"

I'm confused about plural things in plural group. Could anyone explain me with examples?

I think my question's title is confusing but I have no good words to make it. If this question is a duplicate, please let me know!

  • So you have three groups each with multiple people? Does that do it? – deadrat Jun 20 '15 at 9:14
  • @deadrat Yes, exactly. – user20629 Jun 20 '15 at 9:18

The phrase you are looking for is

Three groups of people

People is the plural of person, and groups is the plural of group. Of specifies what the group contains.

  • +1. And for the OP: it goes beyond "groups": three piles of money, five rooms of furniture, two stacks of coins, six pints of beer... – Tᴚoɯɐuo Jun 20 '15 at 11:18
