Reminds me of a friend who had a sort of humorous "dialect" of English,
wherein plural was -i (/aj/) and "plural of plural" was -itices
(/'ItIciz/) - don't know where he got that second ending from, but an
examples he gave: "If you have more than one Lutheran, you have
Lutherani, and if you have a group of Lutherani over here, and a group
of Lutherani over there, then you have Lutheranitices"
