HAHAHAHA....love how this forum discussion turned from the pictures to English grammar. :P

 

We are nothing, if not easily diverted...

...or do I mean distracted?  Or do I mean diverted AND distracted? <_<

I know a lot of the grammar rules are by tradition when using -i for plural. Another rule is that the -i plural is used for words of Latin origin. For example octopuses is correct, not octopi because octopus is not from the Latin language.  I'm not trying to get into a grammar debate (I would probably lose), but I am curios if "cello" is of Latin origin.

Octopus has an origin in Greek, so Octopodes is probably the best, Octopods a reasonable english approximation. Octopuses is just plain nasty!:ph34r:

I’d be interested as well in forum members’ thoughts on these celli/cellos/‘cellos.  The tiny lower eyes with wide wings are an interesting characteristic.  My book collection is somewhat limited, but I rummaged through the Fridolin Hamma, Jalovec German/Austrian, Jalovec Bohemian, and Zoebisch books and the closest match I can find to the first cello is a viola from Brno (but I don’t think it IS a match).  The second one has some church bass elements to it, but I’m not sure if church basses got that small.

What do our more educated members think?

I have seen church basses in a variety of sizes and think the second photo is one. I agree the FFs on the first example are pretty unusual but have no ideas on origin.
