The Gathering Numbers
by Billy Cox

Hard to believe, but De Void never knew "dwarfs" - as in, "Snow
White & The Seven Etc". - was the original preferred plural of
"dwarf". Id always assumed Disney was guilty of grammar crimes.
But a little research indicates things took a twist in the
middle of last century when J.R.R. Tolkien introduced hobbits
and a new plural, "dwarves", to literature. That was pretty much
the end of "dwarfs", except for a few scattered pockets of
resistence here and there, such as red dwarfs.

Which sets the stage for a really tortured transition...
