Your Daily Dose is:
You can have pairs of anything. Pair means two. Two apples and two pears. A pair of twins. But some single things in English can also be pairs. Here is a list of all the things in English that I can think of that are pairs, despite being single items. A pair of binoculars. A pair of nail-clippers. A pair of glasses and a pair of sunglasses. Two pairs of glasses, in fact. A pair of goggles. A pair of jeans. A pair of knickers. A pair of pliers. A pair of scissors. A pair of shorts. A pair of tongs. A pair of trousers. A pair of trunks. A pair of tweezers. A pair of underpants. That’s my alphabetical list, and it’s all I could think of. Perhaps you can come up with some different ones? Anyway, you can also count pairs of things, as in two pairs of trousers and four pairs of scissors.
