TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Such words when incorrectly used as nouns provide mirth to Latinate
scholars attempting to derive plurals: One Xerox, two Xeroces? One
Spandex, two Spandeces? Spandexices? Xeroxicieses? "Make a Xerox of
this. Then make five more."
I once raised the question of what the proper plural would be for "Stradivarius." Would it be " Stradivarii"? The person I was talking to said that, since nobody could afford to own more than one, the question was moot.
