Retrieved December 29, , from: Views Read Edit View history. Contemporary pajamas are derived from traditional pajamas.
We do use the singular form, however, when we use pajama as an adjective: Cagey , Jan 15, I agree with cagey but note the following: From the pajamas definition here at WRD. JulianStuart , Jan 15, In French pyjama is singular. In English it is plural. It can however be used as an adjective as in pyjama bottoms. It may seem peculiar but the English terms for leg covers is usually plural; for example trousers, jeans, pants, trews etcetera.
Even when the word is a pretty obvious borrowing for example pantaloons it is still plural. If one wants to talk about more than one of such garments one says several pairs of trousers.
