To Leo Barhorst,

Hello Leo,

>Last night I've observed the complete 97- 30 family of Iridia.<

You shouldn't fall into the same trap as other writers on this list. The =
plural
of 'Iridium' in English is 'Iridiums', not 'Iridia', because it is a prop=
er
name, not a noun.


Any linguist out there to comment ?
