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.
