English dialects and classical plurals

I recently got into an argument about how best to pluralize imperium in a non-Roman context. This is not a word commonly used in English outside of science fiction/fantasy. I'm wondering if intolerance of specific classical plurals or classical plurals in general differs between dialects.

How would you pluralize the following?
emporium
curriculum
stadium
medium
referendum
forum
memorandum
imperium
