      "The parents begat five children"

      The only valid use of "begats" is the plural of the noun form, "begat", which is a genealogical list.


      Ta, I'm bored stiff so I just thought I'd join in by being a pedantic @rse, to fit in with others on the forum. Please feel free to ignore me entirely
