Plural of “today”?

Does the word “today” have a plural form?

I believe it is todays but the gf doesn’t believe that is a word?



Sure, the count noun today is a word. Take this example:

” More, ” Whistling Pete murmured, drifting in the depths of oceans much deeper than sleep. ” More yesterdays. More todays. More tomorrows. ” (Scott Bradfield. “Penguins for Lunch.” Triquarterly 93, 1995 (Spring), p. 21-45; found via Corpus of Contemporary American English)

Or this:

She faces the additional problem of obtaining the residence registration cards that are required of all Chinese for the youngsters who have no family background. # ” I have given the children their todays, ” she reflects. ” But I’m not sure of their tomorrows. ” (“A Caring Mother Gives a Home to Chinese Orphans.” Christian Science Monitor, 16 Nov. 1994.)

The usage is far rarer – it requires today to function as a noun and for the situation to call for referring to multiples of something that normally happens one at a time (today, as in this day). Yet, it can and does happen.
