Mistaken Plurals

I often hear people use the following for plurals of CRISIS and BREAKFAST: They say CRISISES and BREAKFASTES. ┬áThose non-words look really strange, don’t they? They sound just as odd. The plural of CRISIS is CRISES (cry-sees) and the plural of BREAKFAST is BREAKFASTS (brek-fists).

Phew! I feel a lot better having taken care of that problem.
