_u_ +‎ _-s_. NOUN US * plural form of _u_ USAGE NOTES * There is some difference of opinion regarding the use of apostrophes in the pluralization of references to letters as symbols. _New Fowler's Modern English Usage_, after noting that the usage has changed, states at page 602 that "after letters an apostrophe is obligatory." The 15th edition of _The Chicago Manual of Style_ states at paragraph 7.16, "To avoid confusion, lowercase letters ... form the plural with an apostrophe and an s". The _Oxford Style Manual_ at page 116 advocates the use of common sense.
