Correct method for making ‘process’ plural

Sometimes the right way of doing something looks wrong. Such is the case with the plural for the word process.

Making the word plural involves simply adding an es to get processes, as in The Los Angeles-based manufacturer tried several different processes before settling on one single method of production.

Processes probably looks wrong because some people mispronounce it, saying “processeze,” just as they would pronounce the end of neuroses, which is the plural of neurosis. Who can blame them? After all, “processes” is really hard to roll off the tongue.

But process is not of Greek etymology, as is the word neurosis, so that method of pronouncing es as eze does not apply.
