Is axis singular or plural

Is “axis” singular or plural?

Dear M.
Anonymous,

Good question.
“Axis” can look plural because of its “s” ending, but it is not.
PLURAL: The word “axis” is singular.
Its irregular plural is “axes” (not “axises”).
This is one word ending in “s” whose plural form is not created by adding the expected “es”; instead, the “i” in “axis” changes to “e” to form “axes,” perhaps because of its Latin origin.
