I used to love Maths…

I am going to stop there. Maths, short for Mathematics, plural, like Physics.

I don’t know why Americans call it ‘Math’, like there is just one, except possibly laziness.

What annoys me even more is when they add an S to a word that is patently singular.

Suppose you buy a car. It’s up for £10,000 but you buy it for £9,000. That’s a reduced price. You have saved money, made a saving. Singular. Not “a savings”.
