Internet squabbles and snowflakes
« on: July 11, 2018, 03:37:26 PM »
Someone on a forum I occasionally go to was using the word medias. I politely pointed out that media is the plural of medium and there is no such word as medias in English.

She disagreed (American  ::) ) so I sent a couple of links about Latinate plurals  angel1

She grudgingly acknowledged her error and then complained about me.

I have a 24 hour suspension  ::)

Surely Median's would mean owned by a single media while medians would be a group of them...  whistle:
