When I was young I swear I used to see and hear the word rooves for the plural of roof.

We have hooves for hoofs but I never see/ear rooves any more.

Did I imagine the whole thing back in 1974? confused

'Buss' is also an archaic word meaning 'kiss'.

Ooh, is that what it means? I thought it meant bum pinch!

A buss is an electrical thing so busses would be more than one of those

Nope, it's still 'bus' in computing. According to google, 'buss' means a kiss.

I was taught rooves and hooves in the 70s as well. Archaic? How dare they? although I am ancient
