singular or plural?[edit]

In 2009 and 2011, User:PRODUCER moved it from the singular to the plural without explanation (in the meantime in 2010‎ User:Timbouctou had moved it back without explanation). I've checked Google Books, and the English results seem comparable, although there's a lot of fodder (non-English books wrongly recognized as English). It seems to me that stećak is better because it's less hard to pronounce by native speakers, and other similar articles also use singular - e.g. stele, hilarri, totem pole. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 09:28, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

I re-read WP:SINGULAR and WP:PLURAL and can't really find a justification for the (foreign-language) plural here. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 09:32, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
