Singular and Plural

I realize that it has been far too long since this community was last updated, so I guess that I will post about something that has been bugging me lately.

It seems like the people around me just cannot seem to figure out how to properly spell the plural forms of certain nouns.

We should know by now that English is one funky language, so let us take a look at some of those weird plural forms that just do not simply end in "-s."

just some of the common ones that I seeCollapse )

If there are any strange or unusual plural forms of nouns that you would like to see on this list, feel free to leave a comment with your suggestion.

Also, you might want to check out this little quiz.

Introductory Post

The SHIFT Revolution (inspired by Scott Westerfield's novel So Yesterday) is a community created to promote the use of the SHIFT-key. The SHIFT-key is an approximately 4.9 x 2.5 cm key found on the lower left and right of your keyboard. The SHIFT-key is used to make CAPITAL LETTERS, allowing you to creating eye-turning effects such as this: RoTfLmAo. It also allows you to use handy symbols like these: <>?:"{}+_)(*&^%$#@!~|

The SHIFT Revolution was created to teach, not to criticize, censure, denounce, condemn, attack, lambaste, pillory, arraign, disparage, denigrate, roast, scold, rebuke, admonish, chide, castigate, reprimand, or reproach you. Our only goal is to improve the grammar of the world. Quite the job yes, but we're eager. We will provide lessons, grammatical help for essays, and anything else we can. We encourage every member of the community to do the same. Help out your fellow man.

Even though we are your mods, we are not perfect, a sad but true fact. On the off-chance that we do make a mistake there are reasons why: a) typos and fingerslips; b) exhaustion due to lack of sleep. If we make a mistake, feel free to tell us what is wrong and we will learn from our mistake.

The Rules:
1. Be kind. If any person makes a post with any error, feel free to correct them. But DO NOT put them down in any way. If we see this occur twice, you will be deleted.
2. If you post an entry with a SHIFT-key, etc error then please explain to us what, exactly, the error is. This is a learning community so teach us what is wrong.
3. If your entry is particularly long, please put it behind a lj-cut and try not to kill your fellow members' friends pages.

These rules are subject to change at the mods' whim.

If you have any questions/comments/complaints/inquiries please do not hesitate to contact the mods, oddlittlebunny and mulspar.

Enjoy.
Long live the SHIFT Revolution.
