In https://docs.python.org/2/reference/datamodel.html#the-standard-type-hierarchy, under "numbers.Real (float)", in sentence

  "the savings in processor and memory usage that are usually the reason for using these is dwarfed by the overhead of using objects in Python"

either "is dwarfed" should be "are dwarfed" (preferred) or "are usually" should be "is usually"
