What is the plural of roof?
- Roofs is overwhelmingly more common on the internet; rooves occurs sometimes, often just in discussions saying that it is incorrect (though roofs may be pronounced as rooves).
- I thought it might be rooves in Australian (that's certainly how I pronounce it) but even here, on the Macquarienet site and googling Australian sites, roofs is far more frequent. --Singkong2005 · talk 07:17, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, rooves is wrong. I've removed it. 15:13, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
- Wrong or not - it exists. I have replaced it, but added a note that it is less common and considered incorrect.--Dmol 22:00, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
