EtymologyEdit

From Latin quōrum, genitive plural form of quī(who, which), used as standard wording in written commissions.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

quorum (plural quorums or quora)

  1. The minimum number of members required for a group to officially conduct business and to cast votes, often but not necessarily a majority or supermajority.
    We can discuss the issue tonight, but cannot vote until we have a quorum.
  2. A selected body of persons.

Usage notesEdit

The plural quora is sometimes objected to on the grounds that it is not grammatically correct: in Latin quorum is a plural pronoun, not a singular noun.
