Singular and Plural Nouns
A Singular Noun refers to only one person, place or thing, event or idea. And, a Plural Noun refers to any number of items that are more than one.
Changing from Singular to Plural FormIn most cases, to make a Singular Noun into a Plural Noun, one only needs to add an “s” or an “es” combination to the end of the word.
For Example:There are some Nouns which have a different spelling when they are changed from the Singular to the Plural form. (Meaning, different than simply adding an “s” or “es” ending.) These Nouns are referred to as Irregular Nouns.
There are also other types of Nouns which have the same the spelling, regardless of whether the Noun is in the Singular or the Plural form.
- Deer > Deer
- Moose > Moose
- Fish > Fish
(although in England, they like to say “Fishes”… Silly Brits!) 😀
I hope that helpsIf you have any questions about Singular, Plural, or Irregular Nouns – or if you would simply like to argue with me about whether the plural form of “Fish” should actually be spelled and pronounced “Fishes” – then don’t hesitate to leave a message below.
(actually I’m kidding, I don’t really want to argue… If you prefer British English, then use it! That’s great… I just like to make fun)
😉And remember that if you find GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! to be educational, entertaining, or you really wish we would burn in hell for making learning English fun for people who hate the traditional school system, because they actually like to use their own brains… then by all means… tell the whole world how much you either love or hate us…
(well, actually… there is no “us”… it’s just lonely old “me”.)
Have An Excellent Day!
