Asked in English Spelling and Pronunciation
How do you spell scisor?
The word "scissor" (scissors) applies to jointed tools, used for cutting. The lifting tools (scissor lift, scissor jack) have similar crossed arms, forming an adjustable diamond shape. "Scissors" is almost always used in the plural because of the two separate blades in the cutting tool. A "pair of scissors" uses the singular form. The singular "scissor" is also usable as a verb, to cut or separate.
