Just like it's technically correct, although arguably pedantic, that plural of octopus is 'octopuses,' as octopus is of Greek origin and Greek isn't pluralized by changing 'us' to 'i.' If you wanted to be really technical, the plural of octopus should be octopodes (or something). If octopus were of Latin origin, I believe it would be more along the lines of octoped. Oh, and it should also be written in a different alphabet.
