Given the following two sentences.
- There are more than one people.
- There is more than one people.
Which one of them is grammatical, both of them, any one of them or none of them? The noun people (presumably collective) is generally plural. Therefore, the former sentence seems to be correct (this is usually the case in my local languages).
It is something similar to the case, where zero is (mostly) considered plural though intuitively it should be singular. Moreover, it should be safe to say, there is more than one person instead of saying,
there are more than one person. but I'm not sure about people, when used in such constructs. Sorry for this simple question :)
