    Hello,

    I am wondering which would be better to use for a website that sells stuff.

    Should I use the Latin plural or the English plural? This is for something I want to sell, where both terms are accepted and both seem to pull the same results.

    This particular word is similar to the word fungus.

    Both "fungi" and "funguses" are correct.. Google shows the same results for both terms using Google analytics.

    So which would you use? The Latin plural or the English plural?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    I would register both and redirect to either one. You can decide later on which one you want to use as your primary one. I prefer singular.

    Best thing to do is register both and then post your domains on NP's and ask us to vote which one we like better.

    Thanks guys. I think I'll go with the Latin plural and forward the English plural. :)

    A bit late. But I think fungi is way better than funguses even if they both have the same search results.
