You know why? Because you want to know more, much more about sports. That’s why.,Surely, so distinguished a sportsman as Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi should know the differenee between sport and sports.In an advertisement in The Statesman of October 14, he says: “I’m editing a new sports weekly, Sportsworld. You know why? Because you want to know more, much more about sports. That’s why. I know, because we found out. By talking to people like you, people who love sports and read sports magazines. We found out that people want to know what’s going on behind the scenes, not just what’s happening on the field. People want sports to be made into news, just like politics and current affairs are news … Let’s take a new look at sports.”‘Sports’ covers athletics (running, jumping, throwing the discus and so on). ‘Sport’ covers hunting, fishing, racing, cricket, football and other outdoor games.In an adjectival sense, of course, ‘sport’ becomes ‘sports’ and hence we have sports weeklies, sports cars, and sports editors. A distinguished Sports Editor of The Times of India, Nicholas Leontzini, some years ago, however, used to refer to himself as ‘sport editor’, in the mistaken belief that one who edits a page devoted to sport must necessarily be a ‘sport editor’.But there are words with a singular form as nouns, which assume a plural one as adjectives. And some with a plural form as nouns assume a singular one as adjectives. For instance, billiards is a popular game, but the table on which it is played is known as a billiard-table; the attendant who keeps the score is a billiard-marker; and the balls with which the game is played are billiard-balls.advertisementIn The Statesman of October 1, an article bearing the heading, ‘Of American Lure and Dilemma’, has been reproduced from The Times of London. Unfortunately, ‘dilemma’ is often mistakenly used as a synonym for ‘predicament’, whereas, as any student of Logic knows, the two words are poles asunder in meaning.In The Sunday Standard, of October 8, there is a heading, ‘On The Horns of a Dilemma’. But actually, one has to be between the horns of a dilemma, and not ‘on the horns’. When one is between the horns of a dilemma, one is in the unenviable position of being between the devil and the deep sea.Femina, of October 8-22, carries a Letter to the Editor, under the heading, ‘Dry Fruit Scandal’, to the following effect: “A radio news item on August 24, 1978, announced that India had exported cashewnuts worth Rs 147 crore during 1977-78. I was stunned by the news that in the craze for earning foreign exchange we are depriving our children of such ordinary dry fruits as these, which are being sold from Rs 50 to Rs 60 per kg which is beyond the reach of even our middle classes. Most of the dry fruits are items of import and thus these are available only at prohibitive prices. Cannot something be done to reduce the prices of the dry fruits grown in our country?”Misnomer: Though I sympathize with what the writer of that letter says, I find the use of the term ‘dry fruit’ puzzling. When I buy apples or oranges, they, too, are dry and not wet. Presumably, the writer means ‘dried fruit’. But cashew nuts cannot be described as dried fruit by any stretch of the imagination. They belong to the nut family. Raisins, currants, sultanas and plums are genuine species of dried fruit because they are dried grapes.So are prunes, because they are dried plums. But strictly speaking, even almonds cannot be included in the term, ‘dried fruit’, because they are merely the seeds of certain types of plums and peaches, which do not have to be dried. Walnuts, too, cannot be included in the realm of dried fruit, since they are only nuts like cashew-nuts. So are pistachios just nuts and not dried fruit.Why must newspapers refer to grain as ‘food grains’? What else can grain be? In The Statesman of October 3, a leader-writer says: “As many as six chief ministers asked for prices ranging from Rs 100 to Rs 120 a quintal for paddy and coarse grains as against the A.P.C.’s recommendation of Rs 82 for paddy and Rs 78 for coarse grains.”Does not grain mean ‘grains’? There is unnecessary fondness for the plural form when the singular one has a collective sense. It is common for people to seek the ‘blessings’ of personalities like Acharya Vinoba Bhave and Jayaprakash Narayan. Why cannot they be content with the blessing of such saintly people?Redundancy: Among the business community, the union finance minister is one of the most hated men in the country, because he is always levying ‘excise duty’ or increasing it, on an ever-widening range of goods. But ‘excise’ by itself means ‘tax’ or ‘duty’. What else can ‘excise’ be? This redundancy is like the term commonly heard, ‘kerosene oil’.advertisementKerosene cannot be anything other than an oil. Octroi is another hated governmental impost. But though the word is in everyday use of commercial circles, I have never heard anybody pronouncing it correctly. Invariably, octroi is pronounced to rhyme with ‘boy’, and not as it should be – octrawh.Daniel Defoe, father of the English novel and of British journalism, once remarked: “If any man was to ask me what I would suppose to be a perfect style of language, I would answer that in which a man speaking to 500 people of all common and various capacities, idiots or lunatics excepted, should be understood by them all.”
