Daniel responded to the Glorious ... [I had a great epithet here, but Serena
won't let me use it]:

SL> Kudos to the sharp folks who noticed the error; you each now have a
SL> gold star in my book.

> Plural people; plural "kude".

While that is the correct plural formation, this situation doesn't call for
the plural.  "Kudos" means fame, glory or reknown, and therefore the
singular is quite correct in this sentence..  She was offering fame, not
fames.  They have glory, not glories.  Reknown, not reknowns, to the sharp
folks of the CoH.

Robin of Gilwell / Jay Rudin, playing the pedanticer-than-thou card again.
