Thank you for using the correct plural.

I'd like to post instances of people using the correct plural.

To start, we have the tulpa.info twitter account: https://twitter.com/tulpa_info
Whoever wrote the description (Pleeb, presumably) gets bonus points for using æ instead of just ae.

Thank you, tulpa-twitter-description-writer-who-is-probably-but-might-not-be-Pleeb.

RE: Thank you for using the correct plural.

So, what, it's supposed to be "the tulpas phenomenon"? I think he just used tulpæ instead of tulpa. If it were plural, he would've written tulpæs.

Also that was probably written in 2012.

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.

Yeah, like if you had a bunch of pigs flying around, you might call it the Pigs Phenomenon.

I don't know why pigs came to mind but pigs.

chalupas

I've seen good people bleed
And I thought I'd seen it all
But my own two eyes would prove me wrong that day.

There are things that I've done
Only seen by the sun
And those things will be buried in my grave.

RE: Thank you for using the correct plural.

Why would you use a plural in the phrase "the __ phenomenon" anyway? 

Would you say "the ghosts phenomenon"? No, you'd say "ghost."
Would you say "the felines phenomenon"? 
Would you say "the hot dogs phenomenon"? 
Would you say "the schools phenomenon"? 

No, no, and no. You'd use the singular.

RE: Thank you for using the correct plural.

Yes, yes, and maybe? I'd use the plural in most cases. Saying “the hot dog phenomenon” makes it sound like it's a phenomenon involving one specific hot dog.
