The plural of ‘mouse’

As most of you will know the plural of the word 'mouse' happens to be 'mice'. This really is a great shame and I shall explain why. One of my students said 'mouses' this evening, an error I have heard on quite a few occasions, being a teacher of English, however I have to say that I have grown rather fond of the word 'mouses'. It sounds rather cute, almost onamatapaeic in a way.

If I could, I would move for the un-cute plural of mouse to be ditched in favour of the much cuter 'mouses'.

Tender Italy

This post is not going to a declaration of my undying love for Italy. No, instead it’s going to be about a problem situation which crops up all too regularly in the news here – that of public tender related corruption and fraud.
