Usage notesEdit

The singular form is normally in used after numerals and stock phrases instead of plurals but both are considered correct grammatically. Thus, it would be more common to say "vele jaren geleden" – many years ago; but "drie jaar geleden" – "three years ago" or in "in de laatste paar jaar" as opposed to "in de laatste paar jaren" ("in the last couple of years").
