Countable?[edit]

So it's not used with an article (e.g. "In a myriad of different ways")? --RealGrouchy 20:04, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

You can do it that way if you like. When this page grows up it'll either admit that or feed you that rubbish about only the adjective form being appropriate. In the mean time see MWOD:myriad or Dictionary.com:myriad instead. They address your query explicitly. --ToobMug 19:59, 5 February 2006 (UTC)
Those links both explain that myriad can be used as both an adjective and a noun, so I reverted the previous edit (which had also completely wiped out the translations section). Possibly a note regarding the usage of the word as a noun would be worthwhile, but a blanket "it is wrong" statement is not. --Matthew Carroll 05:23, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
Yep. Everyone's for prescriptivism until they notice how wrong everyone else is.LlywelynII (talk) 12:07, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Translations[edit]

I'll try to fix the language codes, since I ported all the translations over from Wikipedia. That said, we should have a Biblical Hebrew that is separate from the modern one.LlywelynII (talk) 12:07, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
