Why is octopi the plural of octopus but platypus is platypuses and not platypi?

The pluralization of octopus as "octopi" is in fact, in its Latinate form, incorrect, as this would require it to be a second declension Latin word. Since its classification in Latin form is third declension, according to classical Latin grammar rules, the plural of octopus should be octopodes. In any case, the more commonly used plural of octopus is "octopuses" - which classicists regard as an incorrect oversimplification. Besides this, the plural of platypus cannot be universally agreed upon either - "platypuses", "platypus", and "platypi", as well as the grammatically correct plural "platypodes", are used with varying levels of popularity.

What is the English plural form of cactus?

The plural forms for cactus are cacti or cactuses, both are accepted.Some words that come from Latin, such as cactus, stimulus, nucleus, and radius, still act as they did in Latin. That is, they form a plural by replacing the -us with -i. For some words (such as radius) the ordinary English rules of plurals are often used. Many words that end in -us (such as octopus) are not from Latin, but the -i plural is mistakenly applied.Singular ends in -us/Plural ends in -i:alumnus/ alumnibacillus/ bacillicactus/ cactinucleus/ nucleistimulus/ stimulifocus/ fociradius/ radiiterminus/ terminivillus/ villiOf course to confuse the issue further, the English plural of "virus" is "viruses" not viri; and the word platypus forms the plurals platypus or platypuses, not platypi.

Platypuses (usual plural form of platypus) are one of only five species of mammals that lay eggs instead of giving live birth. They are semi-aquatic mammals with an unusual appearance including a duck-like bill, a tail like a beaver, and webbed feet like an otter.
