Most of the time, when a noun becomes plural, you simply add -s, -es, or -ies to the end of the main word.
For instance, if you have more than one puppy, then you would add -ies to the end. More than one puppy would then become puppies. You may often find that you drop the last letter when placing -ies to create a plural word.
Sometimes, you may have to add extra consonants before attaching a plural ending. For instance, the word “gas” needs an extra letter when adding the plural ending. When talking about more than one kind of gas, the plural form is gasses. See how we need an extra -s- to attach the -es plural ending.
Words that end with an -f- often have an interesting spelling change when converted to a plural noun. Often these words, which end in -f-, are changed to -ve before adding the pluring ending. For instance, more than one wolf is changed to wolves. There are a few exceptions to this rule, such as the words beliefs, chiefs, and roofs.
For words that end in vowels, like an o, the plural ending is often -es. For instance, tomato is a word that ends with the -o- vowel. More than one tomato becomes tomatoes. There are also exceptions to this rule too, such as pianos, halos, and photos.
English also has irregular and strange nouns that do not really have rules or reasoning to their plural form. For instance, the word foot is irregular. More than one foot becomes feet. More than one goose becomes geese. We also have words that do not change in their plural form. If you go into the woods, you may see a deer; however, you may also see more than one deer. The plural form of deer does not change from the singular. The same is true with the word fish.
The chart below gives examples of words with each plural ending.
|Plural Nouns ending in -s|
|cat = cats||lamp = lamps||shadow = shadows|
|Monster = monsters||Chair = chairs||Hat = hats|
|Computer = computers||Door = doors||Stone = stones|
|Ghost = ghosts||Yellow = yellows||Singer = singers|
|Flower = flowers||Rug = rugs||Plant = plants|
