Would you also propose the same for \notemode, \chordmode, \drummode
and \figuremode? The present names are consistent.
`lyrics' is a plural word!
Yes, but "lyric" is a perfectly good word, both
as a noun and as an adjective. A lyric is a "verse
or poem susceptible of being sung to the accompaniment
of a musical instrument" (Britannica).
"Lyric" refers to the object - the verse or poem itself.
"Lyrics" refers to the words within the object.
In any case, these mode names are made-up words, so
grammatical rules don't apply to them. I still prefer
consistency and no change - no "s".
