Singular is a form of the noun that shows that there is only one. The opposite of the singular is the plural, which means there is more than one.

For example, in English the word "cat" in one cat is singular, but in two cats it is plural.

Concepts are nouns which usually take the singular. Thus "rhythm" as a concept is singular. But when we talk of different types of rhythm, those are particular rhythms.
