Plural Noun Study Guide Guide

  • A singular noun names one person, place, or thing.
  • A plural noun names more than one person, place, or thing.
  • Most nouns can be made plural by adding -s or -es to the end of the word.
  • Nouns ending in -x, -z, -s, -sh, and -ch form the plural by adding es to the end of the word. (ex. foxes, benches)
  • If the word ends in a consonant followed by -y, form the plural by changing the -y to -i and adding -es to the end of the word. (ex. city = cities)
  • Some words that end in -f or -fe are formed by changing the -f to -v and adding -es. (ex. leaf = leaves)
  • Some words have irregular plural forms. (ex. child = children, foot = feet, mouse = mice)
  • Some words are used for both singular and plural. (ex. sheep, dozen, fish)
