SINGULAR AND PLURAL NOUNS

There are different types of nouns in English. Pay attention to the different plural forms.

REGULAR NOUNS

Most singular nouns form the plural by adding -s.

EXAMPLES
Singular Plural
car cars
dog dogs

boy boys

If a singular noun ends in s, x, z, ch, sh,  you have to add-es to form its plural

box boxes

A singular noun ending in a consonant and then y makes the plural by dropping the y and adding-ies.

EXAMPLES
