    Question "By the close of the 20th century, taxonomy had reached a crossroads."

    Hi Guys!

    This sentence was posted in an article in Scientificamerican.com.
    "By the close of the 20th century, taxonomy had reached a crossroads."

    Shouldn't the sentence read "By the close of the 20th century, taxonomy had reached a crossroad". I copied that sentence in MS Word and it did not show any error.

    Can someone explain how it is gramattically correct?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    actually croassroads is a single entity. i.e the junction of two roads is collectively called croassroads and not crossroad.

    cheers
