My two would be eaves and oats, on the grounds that they are almost always plural when you see them in reading.

I have suggested them both in the past, but without success.

Another one that I don't understand, if I may be so bold as to mention ladies' unmentionables, is why panty, pantie and panties are all allowed. I'm not sure, but I have a feeling that all three are common.

I don't think I've ever seen pantie used, Mike. Or even panty, except in pantyhose.

Really - are they all common? I think alps and eaves should be allowed as common words. I've been advised of alp reasoning but I think it's in the same vein as the eave reasoning. But let's be honest you say, read and hear of alps and eaves way more than the singular.
