Unusual question

Jana Remy, on her blog, posed this question:
what is the plural form of 'apocalypse'? which I would answer:
Why would you ever need to know?
I mean, how many of them can we have?

Labels: ,

It must be apocalypses. Arguably, the recent earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster qualify for mutliple apocalypses for those in the affected region.

On a different language musing note, I was eavesdropping at the coffee shop again and overheard a portly lady with a cane tell her friend "I have six fatal conditions. Some of them are chronic."
