As done with other Language sites, should not we generally use the plural for tags, especially when they are about grammar categories?

  • I think as long as they're consistent (ie. we don't have both pronoun and pronouns) either is fine. Sep 9 '16 at 11:16
  • It is not consistent if a tag is using the plural, and another one is using the singular. While it makes sense to have article because Esperanto does have just an article (i.e. what in other languages would be the definite article), it doesn't have sense to have verb since Esperanto doesn't have a single verb.

It is all about shared behaviour. If a behaviour is shared by all verbs, the tag should encompass all the verbs. That is why we use the plural. "Verb" only makes sense if the verb has a specific behaviour that other verbs don't, but in this case a more specific name should be prefered.
