בעברית מקובל לומר 'עסקים' בריבוי, אבל באנגלית המילה business היא צורת יחיד.
מדוע נכתבת המילה business בצורה כזאת?
המילה business נוצרה מהמילה busy ('עסוק') בתוספת הסיומת ness-. כשמוסיפים סיומת למילה המסתיימת ב-y, מחליפים את ה-y ב-i (למשל, story בצורת ריבוי: stories). לפיכך, business נכתבת ב-i, אבל ה-i אינה נהגית, כיוון שהמילה התקצרה לשתי הברות תוך השמטת ההברה האמצעית.
