為什麼many a setback, 有many但又有a呢?

請問英文專家, 兩句有"a"的狀況:

(1) He met with many a setback in his lifetime.

他一生中遭受許多挫折

為什麼已經有了many但後面又加了個 a 呢?

可以只用many就好嗎?

(2) Thanks to everyone who a contributed to the making of this project.

感謝所有對這個計畫貢獻的人

為什麼要用a contributed? 直接只用contributed可以嗎?

這兩個"a"的出現讓我不解, 不知是慣用語還是文法的問題? 請英文專家解惑? 謝謝!

    你要把"many a" 當成片語來用, 意思是"許多"

    Thanks to everyone who a contributed to the making of this project.

    我覺得這一句怪怪的喔! 是不是你有漏打還是誤打?

    應該不需要+a 吧!
