That I can believe. It seems English doesn't always act too logically.In fact, in my English grammar, people is mentioned particularly as a word that looks singular but acts as a plural. So maybe it's English that's acting funny here
I did not know that.Contrary to popular opinion, it is not the plural of person, since both "people" and "person" can be turned into their own plurals by adding an S. In fact, the word "people" comes from the Latin populus and "person" comes from the entirely separate word persona.
