sort Like kind, sort gives rise to a usage difficulty when it is followed by of with a plural noun and needs to be preceded by a demonstrative pronoun this, that, these, those. The grammatical sequences in use are as follows: ?These sort of things sometimes come as a surprise. ? I was beginning to think about university and that sort of thing. ? Those sorts of factors (or factor) will always apply. The first is sometimes rejected by language purists, but it is common, especially in speech. Recommendation: to avoid difficulty, use this sort of + singular noun, or these sorts of + singular or plural noun.
