Pedant's Corner

(I know at least two people will appreciate this.)

Peter Beattie, on the 7:30 Report last night:

"...asking them to get their Solicitor-Generals to have a further phone hook-up."
"The Solicitor-Generals from around Australia need to meet with the Federal counterpart..."
"...but I'm not absolutely sure until all of the Solicitor-Generals sit down...

Unless there's been some sort of royal decree, the plural of Solicitor-General is Solicitors-General.
