+JMJ+Is the recent trend in posting your way of saying where you stand on the "One Picture" vs. "One Thousand Words" question?
I can't make anything slip past you, can I? It's something I just have to do -*said in melodramatic tone*- and I don't know why. lol.
+JMJ+To be totally truthful now, Stiwell, there are a million things you could slip past me without my noticing them. Like elephants, rhinoceros, and hummers blaring Hiphop music.
But not hippopotamuses?
+JMJ+I was going to name them until I came up against my insane compulsion to write the plural as "hippopotami." So I switched to hummers. But yes, you could get a whole bloat of hippos past me, too. I'd be too busy squinting at all the little bugs on its back.
There are a plethora of hippopotami?There is a plethora of hippopotamuses?
+JMJ+Well, British English or American English? Is "plethora" British? I use "bloat," but it's probably American.
Oh, your talking about the word for a hippo herd. I would just use "pod". "Bloat" sounds better though, especially for hippos. But if I was to use "plethora" simply to describe "many" hippos, would the predicate be "is" or "are"?I guess British English.
