RfV-sense for “[a] secret essence or remedy; an elixir”. Etymologically plural, but the sense is a countable singular and the inflexion line calls this noun uncountable. Is this mistaken — in terms of the word’s grammatical, if not its semantic, function?  (u):Raifʻhār (t):Doremítzwr﴿ 15:43, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
This seems identical to the second sense of the singular form arcanum. Is this word properly a plurale tantum, whereas its singular uses are {{non-standard}}?  (u):Raifʻhār (t):Doremítzwr﴿ 15:48, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
