用在電腦或智慧手機的手寫輸入筆 (觸控筆) 叫做 stylus [ˋstaɪləs]

在以前它指的是像針筆的金屬筆頭, 或黑膠唱片的唱機上那枝唱針

現在是用來指觸控筆

它的複數可以用 styluses styli [ˋstaɪ laɪ]

(像這種結尾的字都源自拉丁文, 複數時結尾就從 us 變成 i

比如 仙人掌” cactus 的複數也是 cacti )

我們來造個句:

I got a stylus for my new smart phone.

It is easier to write on a small touch screen with a stylus than with a finger.
