My Blog on Art, History and Crafts
I just started and new board on Pinterest for pictures of Jellyfish, Octopodes, Anemones, Starfish and Squid. I felt so inspired I thought I had to make my own little octopus creation too.
Fun Fact: Did you know the commonly used plural Octopi is grammatically incorrect? The word Octopus is originally Greek. Whereas the use of -i in Octopi as a plural of the singular -us, is in fact Latin. The Greek plural ending for a singular noun ending is -us is -odes, making Octopodes the correct plural of Octopus. You’re actually better off saying Octopuses when speaking English than saying Octopi.
