the plural of nexus: nexi?
I found this in the Language Log:
The sad thing about Goropism is that within it lie the seeds of the evil nexus of nationalism, racism, and linguistic chauvinism." You could turn that comment into a terrific book on the Dark Side of the enlightenment.
This nexus refers to a "scholar" who explains all human language in terms of Dutch.
The other was a conversation about the evil triangle in New Mexico of Los Alamos, Espanola, and Santa Fe.
The nexus of plutonium, poverty, and privelege.
