Plural of “Pegasus”

Further to me previous post about plurals, I thought I would share this little gem from one of my favourite tweeps, @FakeAPStylebook who writes:

“The plural of ‘pegasus’ is unnecessary, since there's no such thing as one, much less multiples, and maybe you should grow up.”

  1. Although it was originally used to refer to a single being by name, Pegasus has since become metonomous for all winged horse. Either use is still only correctly identified in the plural as Pegasuses or Pegasus'.
