It is Lego.
LEGO is the name of a specific brand of plastic building block construction toy with a friction-based feature to prevent accidental disassembly.
Correct terms are LEGO, LEGO bricks, LEGO blocks, LEGO parts / pieces (for Adult Fans of LEGO).
I said 'Lego' as a kid and I still do, sometimes I call them blocks or Lego pieces though.
Legos does not sound correct.
It sounds correct to people who say it. Duh
lego doesn't have a plural
it is a non-countable noun like water
you can say
a piece of lego
a box of lego
you can't say 'a lego' or 'two legos'
and it definitely doesn't have an apostrophe
Actually it does , the plural is also Lego
Lego or Lego bricks
It has always been Lego, to refer to the individual pieces call them Lego bricks or just bricks. Never legos.
LEGOS: this should be a normative debate
The question is not IS the plural 'lego' or 'legos', but what SHOULD it be?
And I would advocate 'legos'. Yes, I can see that it sounds cack. And Yes, I can see the strength of the argument that any proponent of 'legos' might be viewed a pedo. But let me say one thing: would you censor a person for trying to push forward the boundaries of language?
Look at what is going on in other subject areas. Already, the pluralised use of 'internets' pervades our daily life. Various other previously laughable pluralisations are now accepted vernacular, and I think that we, the vanguard, need to be identifying new pluralisations and aggressively promoting them.
Who's with me?
I'm not sharing my Lego with you. So there.
The motion doesn't attack the evolution of language but asks what is correct/right.
Lego is a word, Legos is not and if you're still confused check the Oxford dictionary or Webster.
