Hi M Japan,

'Prospectuses' is the plural of 'Prospectus'. If not let me know too.

Thanks, Toms Mathew. I note that it is one of those 'fourth-declension' things. Groovy!


The Urban Dictionary was obviously wrong when it gave this;
1. Prospecti

Plural of the word prospectus

Finding a good university is a nightmare, I've spent the last two days looking through prospecti




...and so was The School of Music'

Accountable Person: Portfolio manager or assistant.

Benchmarks: No prospecti missing, and no outdated prospecti on file.

Quantify from feedback: If nobody complains about missing or old prospecti, then it is working.

Now we just need a quote from a qualified scientologist to make it all official, and to get the word 'prospecti' onto the tongues of everyday citizens.

Hello Mr.M Japan

Remember many words are in old usage (might have been used before our age, because English is not a laguage formed yestrerday or day before yesterday, and it has many words from all languages used all over the world.)and not used at present. But I have never come across such a word. And in your question " What would/is the plural form of 'prospectus'?" 'What would be/is' will be right. Please, kindly make sure that you are right before saying the another one is wrong.

And for your kind information, I stand firm on my answer that the plural of 'Prospectus' is 'Prospectuses'.

Chill, Toms. If you read this Administrator's reply more carefully, you'll see he said thanks and that it was Urban Dictionary that was wrong.

Mike, Trust the Urban Dictionary far less far than you can throw it!

I know, just for fun, let's open up the "statuses" debate again!
