Article title with "s"
"Home movies" and "home videos" much less ambiguously denote the sense discussed in this article. When used as a noun, "home movies" nearly always appears in the plural form. This is very similar to "fireworks" discussed in Wikipedia:Naming conventions (plurals), where "firework" is a variant, but not the most common form.
Titling this article in the plural allows "home movie" and "home video" to be used to refer to commercial movies in formats designed for use in comsumer equipment at home. In the case of "home video", this use is a mass noun (not countable), whereas the plural form is reserved for countable "videos". Canadiana 00:21, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
- Home video doesn't point to a disambiguation page at all...not that I think you're wrong about this. --Jemiller226 05:32, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
- Sorry, I had it all straight in my mind, but I typed the wrong thing. (See correction above.) I also moved Home Movies (proper noun) to its own diambiguation page rather than re-directing it to home movies, because I don't see much likelyhood that the generic term will be accidentally capitalized.
