Duplicate keywords: henchman/henchmen, video-blogger/videoblogger

Hi, I was searching the existing keywords for appropriate keywords to add to a webseries I'm submitting, and I ran across two pairs of keywords that I think are duplicates.  The Keyword Submission Guide said to post here to report duplicate keywords, so... that's what I'm doing.

Here are the duplicate keyword pairs:

henchman (2485 titles) / henchmen (22 titles).  The Keyword Submission Guide says that keywords should be singular words, so I guess the "henchmen" keyword should be merged into "henchman" (which of course is already applied to many more titles anyway).

video-blogger (332 titles) / videoblogger (302 titles).  I'd guess the hyphenated version would be the one to keep, not only because it's applied to slightly more titles, but also for consistency with other longer keywords (e.g. "czech-video-blogger", "british-video-blogger", etc.).  Possibly also redundant with these are video-blog (346 titles) and videoblogging (1 title), but I'm not sure about those; the first one at least may be distinct enough to stand on its own.

Thanks.

Whoops... just found another duplicate pair, or duplicate trio:

talking-to-the-camera (1363 titles) / talking-to-camera (423 titles) / talking-to-a-camera (11 titles)

And another duplicate pair:

looking-at-the-camera (1536 titles) / looking-at-camera (8 titles)

And another; maybe I should have waited to post until I was done looking through the keywords:

workplace (191 titles) / work-place (26 titles)

There is also a keyword for vlogger which is the same thing as video blogger. There are tons of duplicate and similar keywords. Unfortunately, there is no great way of doing this. I was, for a while, going through and individually changing the keywords to the more common one but that is time consuming and I got bored of reporting them here.
