Lexus - Peter M.
There is a problem with the Lexus that needs to be addressed, i.e. how do you refer to a plurality of them? Do you just add an 's' as in Astras, Peugeots, etc? (A fleet of Lexuss) Refer to them as 'Lexi' (as in hippopotami) or 'Lexuses' as in buses. Or just 'Lexus', as in Walrus.
Can anybody think of any other car with a name ending in 'us'?
I really should get out more!

Not for nothing is "Rover" a popular name for a dog.
Re: 'us' - mike
the latin plural of "us" is "i",
so it would be lexi,


maybe we sould relate the plural to the type of drivers

eg a gaggle of xr2 nova gt, as they always seem to go around in groups. making an annoying noise, a bit like geese

Was that an intentional lisp?

Re: Lexus - Andy P
After much head-scratching, my local Lexus dealer told me that they have "several Lexus" for sale. Just because it ends "us", the plural version doesn't necessarily have to end in "i". If that was the case, what would the plural of bus be????

Re: Lexus - Ian Cook
Reminds me of the bloke who was writing out a mail order letter to buy a mongoose, but he actually wanted two of them. He wrote:

"Dear Sir,

Please send me two mongooses..."

He crossed it out and wrote:

"Please send me two mongeese..."

He finally crossed them all out and wrote:

"Please send me a mongoose - PS. Please send me another one, too".
