Just to be pedantic (again), the plural of curriculum vitae is curriculA vitae; the qualifier does not change.
Yes, I did Latin at school because it was then a requirement for university entry.



That's true when it's used as Latin. But modern thinking is that when you're using foreign terms as English, then English rules apply. So we have stadiums, singular data, blonde men, etc etc.

I must be a dinosaur then, Nick, because I always use the correct terms, i.e. stadia, datum, blond to use your examples.
Maybe my Latin lessons weren't wasted?

Nah, we are only showing off!
Not everything academic is worthwhile.
And I can't type!
