Seems like a simple question yet it has me stumped at the moment. I'd guess stati but I don't know if that's common enough usage for people to understand.

Guest,

I can't even think of a sentence where the plural form of status would be required.

Nevertheless, according to Merriam Webster dictionary the plural form is statuses.

I hope that helps.

Thank you very much. I am a technical writer for a software company and require this for a knowledgebase article that defines each of the statuses available for an item in the software. In case it ever comes up again, while I was awaiting your response I found it in the Gregg Reference Manual, Tenth Edition.

Thanks for your quick response!

Regards.

An example might be "the visitors to the USA went to the immigration office in order to change their statuses from "Resident Alien" to "Citizen."

So I have changed the status of this thread from 'No Status' to 'Resolved'-- that's two statuses right here.

Thank you so much! I am also a technical writer and was in the exact same boat - I needed to use the plural form of "status" in an FAQ document describing the different statuses assigned by our product.

'Statuses' is the plural form of 'Status', and, in fact, my dictionary doesn't have the word 'stati' at all. Is it-stati a valid word?

There is no word like "stati" in English. "Status" is originally a Latin noun and in Latin it declines as a u-stem noun. So in Latin, the plural form of "status" is also "status". Another word of this sort is "virus". The plural of "virus" in Latin is "virus". But now English people pluralize them as "statuses" and "viruses". In contrast with them, the Latin noun "alumnus" declines as an o-stem noun, and the plural form is "alumni", which is also true in English.
