Your use of whom in that sentence is sooo wrong.
pardon, i realize it after looking at it again.
you can go back to lining up your soup labels now.
I know that dual was initially "invented" for matched pairs of things, like hands, feet, legs, etc.--not just any random two things. I imagine it was dropped as a simplification into "one, or more than one".

The concept of dual does survive in English in the word "both", BTW.
