I hate the word “monies.”

More word issues. That word has always bugged the crap out of me. “Money” is already plural. You don’t have “a money” and “many monies.” This excellent blog by Hellmar sums it up nicely:

You never have one money, you always have some money. So “monies” is a completely useless and redundant word by any application I can think of. There’s never a situation where “monies” could be used and “money” couldn’t be substituted. The dictionary actually defines “monies” as “a plural form of money,” the problem being that money already is fucking plural.
