I know this was already questioned, but i want to ask, if it would be less confusing and better to use:
- "A lot of water is wasted." instead of
- "Lots of water is wasted.
Where "Water" is uncountable, describing much water or a great amount of water seems to me more suitable by "a lot of", also we don't say "muchs of particles are wasted"
A second reason is that "lot" means "more" by it self, why to add the "s" ? Except we want to describe a lot of parts of something / many groups.
Also remembering on the rules of double negatives, where we don't say "I wasn't not running"
