This is true.

I find this a surprising attitude, but I don't doubt you. If using
correct plurals make me sound like an intellectual snob, I am all
right with that; it's a reasonably fair description, TBH.

And FWIW, while I did go to various private schools, some quite
expensive, I have never studied Latin or Greek; only French, at which
I was the bottom of my class. Most of the Latin phrases I know, I got
from the elderly pirate in Asterix books.

Anyway... I don't see why it's any harder to remember "fora" than it
is to remember "children", or "indices" than "mice".
