Singular or plural?

Criteria, phe­nom­ena, data, and media

Judy Vorfeld

“Criteria” like “phe­nom­ena” is plural
“Criterion” like “phe­nom­e­non” is singular

“Data” and “media” are the same whether singular/plural. Some peo­ple may dis­pute this, but as we move fur­ther into the 21st cen­tury, the use is up to the writer.
