Hm. I do voice the f in "wolf's" and "wife's."

Also, "dwarfs" is at least as valid as "dwarves"; in fact, I believe

Tolkien included a note explaining his use of "dwarves" as the plural,

in one of the appendices to Lord of the Rings.

By the way, the young urban polygamists I know are calling their other

halves "spouses" (note regular plural) or "partners," but this is a

small sample.
