Where’s an English Teacher When You Need One?

sleepingcatSomething that’s been puzzling me…

catsCat is singular; cats is plural.  If you have one of them you have a single cat.  If you have several of them you have multiple cats.

Sclerosis is singular; scleroses is plural.  If you have one of them you have a single sclerosis.  If you have several of them, why don’t you have multiple scleroses?

Morning…loved the kitty pictures (pictures of cats!) Plurals are confusing…is that what makes English difficult to learn. Of all the difficult things in life, MS is right up there at the top……but as you always hav with other things, you cope beautifully!
