Just found this interesting tid-bit:
Graffiti: ORIGINmid 19thcent.: fromItalian(plural), fromgraffio ‘a scratch.’USAGEIn Italian, the word graffiti is a plural noun, and its singularformisgraffito. Traditionally, the same distinction has been maintained in English, so that graffiti, being plural, would requireaplural verb: : the graffiti were all over the wall. By the same token, the singular would require a singular verb: : there was a graffito on the wall. Today these distinctions survive in some specialist fields such as archaeology, but sound odd to most native speakers. sneak peak:
