Soapy Scrabble Squabble

Posted by TheFallen on January 17, 2003

Now, the word "suds" as we all know is a perfectly nice and acceptable plural noun - so my question is simply this. Is the singular form - sud - a real word? It's apparently not permissible in a game of Scrabble.

"She was washing her unmentionables in the sink so vigorously that a stray sud splashed up and onto her blouse."

I can't think of many nouns that only exist in the plural form. Thoughts, anyone?
