use of is and are
Would "is" or "are" be more applicable to the following sentence fragment?
Although there is a plethora of alternative methods readily available
The use of "a" infers singular use, but he word "plethora" is a plural word.
There are many nouns that describe something made up of a plural parts, units, or pieces - these are called collective nouns. The noun describes the entire group as one unit. Plethora is one of those nouns. A plethora is an overabundance of something - an excessive amount.
