    It is fours walls and a roof. There are plenty of other shops. Who cares about this silly thread from 3 years ago. It should be closed down.

    Personally, I find a wall of text off-putting.
    it's a common complaint on the fora I post on.

    But I don't appreciate the grammar pedants pointing out "errors" like you can't start a sentence with "but" or "and".


    PS - shouldn't that be "...on the fora in which I post"?


    Although I suppose Paul McCartney and Wings would sing "...on the fora in which I post in".

    If you are using 'in which I post' then should it not also be 'in the fora'?

    No, although the plural of the Latin Forum is Fora, the term "Internet forum" is not considered to be of Latin origin and is given the plural "Internet Forums" according to English grammar rules.

    Just to confirm, my previous two posts were intended to be light hearted and not criticism of any earlier posters.

    What a bizarre turn this thread has taken over the last dozen or so posts.


    Can't a board guide lock this thread?

    I think he means that when it's used in English as an appropriation from Latin, the plural is anglicised.


    Like football stadium. I'd be very suspicious of anyone who referred to football stadia and not stadiums.


    Also census - don't think I've ever heard anybody say "censii". Mind you easier than saying "censuseseseseseses". How do you know when to stop?

    Yes. That is exactly what it is. The modern English word "Forum" has exactly the same spelling and mostly the same meaning as the Latin word "Forum" it was adopted from.


    On what authority? Every dictionary and language resource I've checked, but none you'd be able to call an "authority" as, unlike the French, there isn't a single authority that controls and prescribes how the language is to be used, the English dictionaries and grammar rules describe how the language IS used. So I guess saying "by a consensus of how the word is used, it is generally agreed that the modern usage of the word follows modern English rules" is as close to an answer on "by what authority" as you'll ever get.


    The Latin plural "fora" is almost only used when talking about public squares in Ancient Roman cities.

    Is Tesco policy to ban from one to be banned from all if not go to another one?.

    Husband is a thief and a fraudster.

    Wife is an accessory.

    Tesco is the victim.

    Wife is looking for sympathy and advice? - Here's some: don't steal, don't be an accessory.

    I'm all out of sympathy for thieves.
    I think this job really needs
    a much bigger hammer.
