Virii is not a legal latinate word, as would be assumed. It is a mass. noun, like 'universe' or 'milk'. That is, you could say 'kinds of virus', but never 'virii'. Would you want moosii? Anyway, because the definition would be new to english, the proper modern suffix would indeed be "es". Viruses. Neat, eh?

Actually, it should be called "fewer virii." "Virii" since "virus" is a latin u-declination word, and "fewer" because virii can be counted. You say "less apple juice" but "fewer apples".
Just my daily dose of nitpicking - don't let it bother you.

BTW, what is the text - "Ped *[&]" or something lie that - supposed to denote?

Thanks to you.

How do I pronounce "virii"?

Actually, virii isn't English, but Latin.

The 'i' is pronounced like the two es in free (to the best of my knowledge - I didn't live in ancient Rome...), so this goes something like veeree-ee.
