I wondered if you hadn't snagged that from somewhere else. We're supposed to
have fixed all of these problems years ago, but apparently we haven't.
It's not that big of a deal, but I felt it worth mentioning. I know the first
time I encountered all of this, it kind of blew me away. Really? Languages
have something other than singular and plural? I even speak about three of
them halfway decently and can read several more, so it was that much more
surprising to be so surprised.

Do you know how to tidy it up? I have a rough idea right off if you're stuck.
If not, then by all means carry on!
