noun (plural candelabra /-ˈläbrə, -ˈlabrə/)
early 19th century: from Latin, from candela (see candle)
Based on the Latin forms, the correct singular is candelabrum and the plural is candelabra. In practice, however, candelabra is increasingly used as the singular form, with the plural as candelabras. In the Oxford English Corpus, these forms are more common than the traditional ones and are coming to be regarded as part of standard English.
