Tomato, tomahto, panini, panino

Inspired by the post of a friend of mine who delighted in a cuban panino, I post this Rantette so I no longer have to think about it.

One does poorly to swim upstream, or to stop Euroclydon with outstretched hand. But it always rubs me the rwong (sic) way to see "panini" used as a singular. The Italian word for sandwich is "panino" (little bread), and "panini" are more than one of them.

Grits "is", but panini "are".

Alas, I am a lone voice, crying in the wilderness.

I hear ya. I'm waging a one man war against management and marketing people about their constant use of "equipments".
