D.W. All Wet

Post by Snowth Poogle on Sat Aug 15, 2015 4:16 pm

There's one thing that seriously bothers me about this episode, and do you know what that is?

Using the word "octopuses" as a plural form of octopus. This is an educational show, there is no such word as "octopuses," and it's the incorrect plural form anyway; the correct plural form of octopus is "octopi." Just like how "cacti" is plural for "cactus."

I mean, really, what were they thinking?

The word octopus comes from Greek, not Latin. The episode is correct.
