The rules of English spelling can be baffling.
Writers and editors see it daily. I recently had to check the spelling of “prerogative” because it couldn’t possibly be spelled “prerogative” (it is).
One area of spelling that is particularly challenging: finding correct plural forms. They can trip writers up, because they’re difficult to spell and difficult to pronounce.
Below are 23 tricky plurals:
3. attorneys general
4. axes (plural of axis)
5. bases (plural of basis)
9. dos and don’ts
