Do you say "A scissor" or "Scissors"?


This is to settle a debate with my bf. If you had one "chopping device" would you call it "a pair of scissors" or "a scissor"? What if you had two?

    That is very informative and makes sense to me. When I was a child I had measles, but never heard of anyone having a measle.
