All Greek to me...

Got caught and taught in the same day! A good writer and close reader saw our post about Reuters Recommends, caught us making a common error, and taught us a useful writing lesson: the Greek word "kudos" is not a plural, and singular is the only form it takes (we used "kudo" incorrectly). Click here to see what another favorite site,, has to they point out, the clever writer will craft the sentence so no one can tell whether she intended singular or plural. The take-home lesson: Admit your mistakes early, and use the dictionary function on Bartleby to check ancient and venerable words...or just ones you don't use frequently!
