Learn English – “People” or “the people”


What is the most correct way to say:

People in the list above will also receive product update notifications.

Should I use the people or simply people? Is there a more formal way to express the concept above?

Best Answer

There’s a very subtle difference. People on its own suggests that those in the list are there by chance. The people, on the other hand, suggests they been included deliberately. For practical purposes, however, it makes very little difference one way or the other.
