GUEST,Mr Happy BS: Grammar Police: eats shoots and leaves (94* d) RE: BS: Grammar Police: eats shoots and leaves 01 Dec 05


Q,

I know what I was looking at- clearly not the same text as you.


A die is a cube with the sides numbered 1-6 & used in games of chance.

The plural of 'die' is 'dice'


See below where the reference to 'indices' was taken from.

An example of recent change- index, pl. indices; becoming obsolete, indexes preferred in current dictionaries.

Indices are the entries in an index. Multiple collections of indices are indexes.
