Plural of Octopus: Don’t Be an Ignorant Grammar Slob

What a whirlwind of a week it has been here at Catchword – so much so that I just didn’t have the time to write my usual well-developed analytical blog post today. In its place, I present this video which examines the plural of octopus. I had no idea the origin of this word was so rich and interesting. Also, I now absolutely adore Kory Stamper, Associate Editor at Merriam-Webster.
