Is the singular 'bus' or 'buss'?

https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/qu ... iew?page=2 uses 'bus' (and 'busses') but searching for 'buss' on the website returns a lot of hits in article titles.

I feel it a little mischievous to point out and I suspect it's one of those things that folks 'know' is there but it's just too much of a faff to retrospectively standardise (plus to be honest, who cares?!) :angel:

The standard of copy in SOS is exemplary, so please don't interpret this as criticism, I was just having a little fun poking around.

In Stoke it would be buz! And a plurality buzzes...Which in this context is entirely inappropriate!
