Example sentences using "Man"

Q: Please show me example sentences with "many a man".
A:

🔘Many a man died in that battle.

For example: -

🔘Many

The word many has two common functions:

A) It is often used as an adjective that describes a plural noun and tells us that there is a large number of that noun, as in these examples:
1. She worked hard for many years. 2. They were one of the many, many families that came to watch the parade._

B) Many is also commonly used as a pronoun, to mean “many people or things,” as in these examples:
1. Some people will come to the meeting, but many [=many people] will not.
2. We were hoping to sell our old books, but many [=many books] were not in good condition._
3. I know some of the people here, but not very many.

🔘Many a/an...

The fixed expression many a/an... is more formal than the single word many, and it is much less common. Many a/an... is used mainly in literary writing and newspapers. Like the adjective and pronoun many discussed above, many a/an... is used to indicate a large number of something. However, it takes a singular noun, which can be followed by a singular verb. Here are some examples:
1. It remained a mystery for many a year. [=for many years]
2. I've been there many a time. [=many times]
3. Many a politician has promised to make changes. [Politician and has are singular.]
