CollopsCollop – Singular form per WP:SINGULAR. ENeville (talk) 17:45, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

  • In a culinary sense, is this term ever used in the singular? By the way, the Other Uses section should be split off. —  AjaxSmack  02:40, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
OED lists "collop" in culinary sense. Compare Brussels sprout or potato chip, which are normally consumed in quantity but titled in singular. Also note Collop (or Collopy) Monday. Re split: yes. ENeville (talk) 20:23, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
Good examples but we also have French fries, chicken fingers, and burnt ends as well as other foods (those that are rarely consumed in the singular). —  AjaxSmack  21:12, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
If it's a wash on that score, I advise titling per default: singular. Put another way, it doesn't seem to fit into one of the categories of exceptions on WP:PLURAL. Also note that we still have the dictionary and the event name in testament to singular usage. ENeville (talk) 20:28, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Oppose This dish is known as Collops, with a Collop (singular) only being part of it. Brendandh (talk) 07:41, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Oppose See also rice and beans, bangers and mash, hash browns, and baked beans. __ Just plain Bill (talk) 16:00, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

But these are examples, as described in WP:PLURAL, that don't exist in singular usage, whereas collop does. I could see the case for a dish alone, but this article covers the culinary use of collop in various forms, beyond just the Scottish dish. Note that bean is singular.

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Collops. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:
