Singular and Plural Nouns

Many times the job of the noun will be to give information about numbers. We have two terms for these number-nouns:

Singular: when the word refers to one person, place, or thing.

Plural: in reference to more than one person, place, or thing.


In most situations we can make a noun plural by adding – s.

Examples:

 

Car ---- cars

Stair ---- stairs

Dog ---- dogs


Nouns ending in s, x, z, sh, and ch add – es:

Examples:

 

Brush ---- brushes

Watch --- watches

 

Nouns ending in f or fe are made plural by changing the f or fe to v and adding – es:

Examples:

 

Life ---- lives

Wife --- wives

 

Nouns ending in y are made plural by changing the y to i and adding – es:

Examples:

 

Family --- families

Entry --- entries

 

Nouns ending in o add – es:

Examples:

 

Potato --- potatoes

Tomato --- tomatoes
