Nota di utilizzo

The use of a plural noun after quantity of, as in a large quantity of bananas, used to be considered incorrect, the objection being that the word quantity should only be used to refer to an uncountable amount, which was grammatically regarded as a singular concept. Nowadays, however, most people consider the use of quantity with a plural noun to be acceptable.
