    Irregular plural or mispelling?

    Please,

    In the lyrics of "You come to my head" by Michael Bulton, there's a sentence:

    Like a summer with a thousand Julys

    I've tried to find the plural of months but I didn't and I'll have to explain it my pupils.


    Thank you very much.

    Welcome to the forums.

    Julys is the correct plural.

    If you look up the names of the months in a dictionary, it should give the plurals. Certainly the Compact Oxford does: AskOxford: January
