Usage notes[edit]

Although plural in form, the term takes singular verb forms: “The Lords has made its decision.” When used by itself, the word is accompanied by the definite article: “The LCC scheme for expanding and linking up tramways across Central London was rejected by the Lords.” But when used attributively, the definite article is omitted: “The sons of peers can be members of the House of Commons till they succeed to their seat in Lords.”
