If I were a peever, I'd peeve against the use of vinyl to refer to a single, specific recording. That's what sounds odd to my ear, and the usage that sets up vinyls as a natural consequence. As others have pointed out, the use of vinyl as a mass noun "that's a lot of vinyl" and as a description of the recording medium "I have that album on vinyl" goes back decades — very close to the introduction of LPs themselves. I wonder what collectors of Edison cylinders peeve about? HP: The sentence "that's a lot of vinyl" doesn't preclude vinyl being a zero-plural count noun e.
Regarding in-group linguistic snobbery — It at least used to be a shibboleth of science fiction fandom that it was sf or SF, but never sci-fi. I'm not sure how true that is any more; I've met more committed fans than me who called it sci-fi. June 13, pm. Collective vinyl might derive from ss DJs' earlier use of "wax" an ironic reference to already-obsolete wax cylinder recordings. Multiple records weren't called "waxes. I seem to recall that at least at one point in history Microsoft decided that the plural of computer mouse was mouse devices since nobody could agree on mice vs mouses.
Nowadays I can't imagine anyone saying mouses. Things like boxen and unices are jokes not to be taken seriously, though there is a curious choice of indexes instead of indices in the database world. Step two: once the object is named a "vinyl," it becomes almost automatically countifiable. Once I am drinking "a beer," I can drink two beers. Why the metonymy? Because the most distinctive thing about the object is that is an old style vinyl lp, and not a cd.
When that was the standard format we called them "records," "albums," "record albums," or "lps," another short hand metonymy that emerged with a format change. Translation: "the warm fuzzy placebo effect I get from believing that I'm listening to vinyl makes me feel good". But note that the discussion is analog vs. You could perfectly well encode a digital signal in a microgroove vinyl record — though it would be a stupid thing to do.
Vinyl, like plastic, is a mass noun, especially in its molten or pre-poured state. Calling a record "a vinyl" is what's pretentious. A record is made of vinyl; I would not call it a vinyl. I wouoldn't call a CD a … whatever it's made of. I've always figured I am in no way bound to respect their trademark-dilution fears, especially considering the way they keep trying to abuse trademark law to enforce long-expired patents against their competitors.
But I think I say "Lego bricks" most of the time anyway. Ian Tindale, way up above, suggested that "we should…adopt the usage of "vinylii" in a knowing tone…. Good idea and I offer a friendly ammendment. Shall we discuss it over ice cream? But "a vinyl" is short for "a vinyl record" and as such is really a different word, which is no longer a mass noun and can have a legitimate plural. This would most naturally be vinyls, short for "vinyl record s.
However, if you have more than one subscription you may go get the "papers" off the porch without being attacked by grammarians. And a teacher may grade several "papers" after an exam. The only difference is that the non-mass use of that word has been around a lot longer. In case there's any doubt about the hipstery peevishness going on here, Salon published "down with fascist iPods" yesterday. Sadly, I am so out of touch that I cannot tell whether this is meant to tongue-in-cheek or not.
Or serious but kind of pretending to be tongue-in-cheek, so as to have deniability. I just can't seem to disabuse myself of the notion that if an X is the name of an object made of X iron, glass, wood [the golf club], rubber , then the plural should be X e s. I have been fascinated for years by the process by which the term 'CD' became the dominant term.
In days of yore a new collection of songs by an artist was promoted as a 'new album' more often than as a 'new LP' or a 'new record,' but as the CD format was introduced albums were promoted as "a new CD by so-and-so," and the word 'album' has become a secondary term at best.
Even granting the extent to which what is new is what is stressed, the word 'CD' used in advertising promoting new albums always felt like a music industry policy to shove the new format through more quickly. Even deejays immediately began referring to albums as 'CDs,' and I used to hear them sometimes say 'CD' even when it was an older album not yet available on CD. Well, because — it's their currency, — English is used as a working language in their institutions and throughout the Union of about million people , — they happen to have the biggest operation for high-quality multilingual production of legal texts in the world and — they need to have style guides for the people working in it.
They don't actually care what British people call it in everyday usage, nor have they ever tried to regulate that. A descriptivist should only be concerned with what the prevailing usage is or what the proportion is between alternatives. And we can all name many cases where special interest groups have been able to impose their terminological preferences on the rest of us. If the hipsters prevail, "vinyls" will become non-standard; if not, not.
But for the moment, isn't it too early to call anybody a peever? I'd remove the "silently" — I don't think it amounts to peeving if you tell someone "Gee, it's interesting that you say X, I would have expressed it as Y". Nor, for that matter, is it peeving if you tell someone something like "the standard spelling is 'independent', not 'independant"" as I in effect did in the original post.
The essence of what we've come to call "peeving", it seems to me, is complaining in a bitter or angry way that someone's usage is Wrong, when that usage is common in some regions or registers, perhaps even in the standard written language. KevinM no. This was in use for mastering flat discs from some latitude here! Again, that was actually a misnomer, because for most of the period the substance only had a minute quantity of wax, almost all of it was a so-called metal soap, manufactured in a cauldron.
Only the lacquer discs for home recording were made in the non-inflammable cellulose acetate — professional ones were and are made of cellulose nitrate. These microgroove records were at first made in a variety of plastics, frequently polystyrene for 45 RPM. Polyvinyl chloride, called Vinyl, was very well suited to the manufacturing process of pressing records and was and is used for LPs.
When the change from coarse-groove to microgroove happened in the early s, the term for the old was SP Standard Play , an expression still used in Japan, and N normal in Germany, whereas the new was LP and M microgroove. I call them PVCs, because that's what 'vinyl' records are actually made of.
But that's just me being curmudgeonly about daft fashions. When I heard that BBC radio 6, a digital radio station, was running a vinyl season, I turned my face to the wall in despair. Incidentally, I heard a radio item about the 'dramatic increase' in the popularity of vinyl records. The records were not for listening to.
Lovely timing; last week a friend showed me a worksheet from her child's primary school that listed several mass nouns as 'plurals,' and we weren't able to articulate clearly what we felt was wrong with that.
We don't change word form for adjectives when the noun goes plural, so "vinyl" doesn't change when the invisible actual noun is plural. The plural of Russian person is "Russians". The plural of periodical publication is "periodicals".
The only ones that I can think of are ethnonyms in -ese, like Japanese. I've just created the file "Max. On a related note, I've heard the term 'records store' as well as 'record store' but never came across 'CDs store' or 'Discs store', only 'CD store'.
When records were limited to 3 minutes a side or so, it would take several disks to hold something like a symphony. They were sold in albums that had a nice cover, perhaps a few pages of printed notes in later years, and your disks, each in a sturdy paper sleeve and all bound together like a book or photo album.
LPs were not not really albums because there was typically just one disk inside a cardboard sleeve. I have many books book? These are indexes. They are unconnected examples of the same kind of thing. In the database world, an index serves to index a column or columns , just as an index serves to index a book.
Hence, collectively, they are indexes. A ship might well have "eight cannon", but a few scattered instances say, at a museum would be "cannons". Is this a vinyl? Maidhc: I'm not disputing why LPs were called 'albums,' but since an album was originally a blank tablet used to record lists, and has since been used in a variety of ways although admittedly usually of multi-leaved "books" the word seems perfectly appropriate to be used of a collection of songs itself, whatever the format or style of packaging.
My record-store friend says some of his customers refer to turntables as "vinyl players. He also said that he can't stand the word "vinyls," but that he would never say he had bought "several vinyl. It's almost the reverse of saying "pant" to mean "pair of pants". I'm sure I've heard that from some fashionista or other using the term on some reality show. Although, I can't quite imagine the same level of peeving in that case.
Victoria Simmons: The term "album" drew a distinction between different types of records,. There was a long period when people purchased vinyl singles as well as albums made up of multiple songs. The singles might either be 78s or, as the 78s became more obsolete, 33s of a smaller size than the standard LP. However, with CDs, there was never really any reason to record less than a full album on a commercially available disk.
So the distinction that "album" drew was no longer relevant. Danny: I remember hearing and possibly saying "homeworks" for "homework assignments" in college and grad school in the '80s. If you search for "two homeworks" with the quotation marks , you'll see that it's still around. Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.
