2.17 Plural Nouns

A noun that stands for one person, place, or thing is singular.
Example: Molly sharpened her pencil.

A noun that stands for more than one person, place or thing is plural.
Example: Molly sharpened five pencils.

For most singular nouns, their plural is obtained by adding -s to the end. If the singular noun already ends in s, ss, x, ch, or sh, its plural is obtained by adding -es to the end. If the singular noun ends in y, change the y to i and add -es to obtain its plural.

Examples:
class - classes
box - boxes
peach - peaches
brush - brushes
story-stories


There are some nouns that do not follow the rules for most plural nouns. They have irregular plural forms. Since these plural nouns do not follow regular patterns, you just have to memorize them.

Examples:
woman-women
man-men
child-children
foot-feet
goose-geese
ox-oxen
mouse-mice
tooth-teeth
cactus-cacti

For some nouns, the singular and plural forms are the same.

Examples:
cattle-cattle
moose-moose
deer-deer
moose-moose
trout-trout
sheep-sheep
salmon-salmon


Directions: Write the plural noun for the singular noun in each question. Use the nouns in sentences. Write five more examples each for nouns that have regular plurals, nouns that have irregular plurals, and nouns that have the identical singular & plural forms.
