    Irregular Plurals

    I want to ask if there is any difference between BrE and AmE concerning irregular plurals; I saw once the plural of 'leaf' written as 'leafs' instead of 'leaves'. Does ot have anything to do?

    And please, I invite you to visit my new website in which there are many writings of mine, and I'd like you to give me your opinion on them in the site's forum.

    Thanks a lot!

    Plurality, to my knowledge, is not an area that separates the two sides of the Atlantic. Some nouns, however, do have alternative plurals, such as 'leaves/leafs' and 'dwarves/dwarfs'.
