A Review of Latin?

November 17, 1985

Who, if anyone, edits your Section for "singulars & plurals?" A couple of recent articles ("Media Feels the Pinch of Tighter Ad Budgets" and "CHRYSLER: Allure of Outside Sources Grow," Nov. 3) call for a review of Latin (media is plural, medium is the singular) and simple English grammar (the allure grows; the sources aren't growing.)

The use of media as a singular form is getting to be an all too common error in "the media," but the other error is just plain carelessness.
