I have just looked on iPlayer at the BBC2 Programme list for tonight and the information for the programme "Great British Railway Journeys" is written as follows: 'Michael Portillo "journies" through the Republic of Ireland from the rugged beauty of County Kerry to end in the city of Galway on the Atlantic coast.' Is the spelling of journies correct as I always thought it was spelt "journeys" as in the title!

Words ending in -ey keep that spelling, adding an s. Attorneys, journeys, keys, monkeys, etc.

You're right — it should be journeys.

Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.

When a noun ends with [vowel] + y, you only need to add an "s" to form the plural (e.g. donkeys, journeys). When a noun ends with [consonant] + y, change the y to an i and add es (e.g. stories, pennies).

"To journey" is a verb, so there isn't a plural.
