3dRender.com : Glossary : Vertex, Vertices

vertex - a single point defined in space. In a 3D model, each vertex has a three dimensional position, and is connected to other vertices by edges, curves, surfaces, or polygons.

vertices - the plural of vertex.

Note: 1 point is a vertex, 2 or more points are vertices.  Some people are confused by this and mistakenly write "vertice" - vertice is not a word, and neither is "vertexes."
