Words with unusual plural forms 

Some frequent examples in our institutional context are campus, curriculum, practicum and thesis, which take the plural forms campuses, curricula, practicums and theses, respectively. Because the standard English plural -s is becoming increasingly widespread, in those cases where you can choose between two plural forms this guide recommends the -s form (for example, syllabuses rather than syllabi). For a longer list of unusual plural forms, see Appendix II: Unusual plural forms.
