Grammar Lesson Monday: Antennas and Antennae

Welcome to Grammar Lesson Monday!
This continuous series will address many common grammar mistakes made in the media and that I've seen more than once.  I strive to make the world a better place with good grammar.

Today, we will learn about using antennas and antennae.

Antennae is used as a plural for a bug's antenna.
Ants use their antennae to sense if an object is friend or foe.

Antennas is used as a plural for non-bug's antenna.
The antennas on our cars are always bent.  Is someone vandalizing them?

That's it for today.  Celebrate good grammar!
