From The Washington Post’s story entitled Fun Facts About Our English Language:

Are there any words that exist only as a plural?

There are quite a few, including scissors, binoculars and tongs.

I mention this because Elysha only refers to scissors as a scissor.

This was fine pre-Clara, but now that we have a little one listening to our every word, I feel that our obligation for proper grammar has increased considerably.  I can only hope that she take this into account and modifies her unfortunate backwater verbiage.
