I'm writing a technical guide and trying to define 'reader' as it relates to the subject of the guide.
The reader(s) is/are the user(s) who view the content.
How do I get rid of all those conditionals? I've also considered,
The reader or readers are the users who view the content.
... which seems fine, but if we flip it, we get:
The readers or reader are the users who view the content.
I've also considered the most obvious:
The readers are the users who view the content
... but I want it implicit that there can be as few as one reader. Am I just over thinking this?
