50 Mistreated Words and Desecrated Phrases: What’s your guyses’ thought on it?

Ouch! Double ouch!

In a word, double plurals are redundant. Plus, they’re wrong. Guys are already multiples. Guyses adds nothing but error to the equation.

“What do you guys think about it?”

Ah. That’s better.

“What’s your thought on it, guys?”

That’s OK too, but only if the whole group of guys share but one thought. But that raises another question altogether.

“Hey, guys. What do you think about that?”
