Assunto:  This a sunglass or these are sunglasses?
 
Mensagem:  And how about a "copo de leite"?  It's a glass of milk, right?  But what if the glass isn't made of glass?  One way around this problem is to call it a "tumbler".

I am very found of nouns that can become adjectives when you least expect them to.  And how about singlular nouns that are treated as plurals?  (The police ARE coming.)

Aaarrrggghhh....
