[Personal] The plural of vortex is vortices

Irregular pluralization of the (American) English language is something that has to drive our ‘tired, poor, huddled masses’ mad when trying to learn to speak it.

I just had the need to pluralize analysis. For the life of me, I couldn’t remember if it was one of those singular/plural same words like species, or if it was an is/es switch. Luckily, the wonders of the internets led me to Joanna Crump’s Webpage on English Grammar and I was able to get proper confirmation.

Injoke –> Yes. Internet is not pluralized. It’s a ‘Bushism’ that was apropos to this entry. Did I really need to tell you that? I’m afraid I would have to, as some people just don’t get it.
