What is the plural form of Corps?
Furthermore, why is the P and S silent in Corps?
It's "Corp" (hard p) because it's an abbreviation of "corporation". It's not a shortening or variant of the word "corps" (eg. Marine corps, press corps") which is pronounced with a silent p (that word comes from an old French word).
Secondly, what is the plural form of diagnosis? BizWritingTip response: “Diagnosis” is a singular word meaning the identification of an illness or disease by means of a patient's symptoms. Dr. House's diagnosis was accurate – as usual. The word “diagnoses” is the plural form.

How do you say Army Corps?
Corps, which is pronounced like "core," and corpse are two entirely different words, and I have never heard anyone pronounce them the same way. I've never heard anyone say Army "corpse" for example.
