    Rules for Forming Plural Nouns

    Form most plurals by adding 's' to the singular noun.

        book = books

    If the singular noun ends in s, ss, sh, ch, or x,  add 'es' to form a plural noun.

         tax = taxes

    If the noun ends in y preceded by a consonant, change the 'y' to 'i' then add 'es.'

        pony = ponies 

    Some nouns are formed irregularly.

        mouse = mice        child = children

        foot = feet             ox = oxen 

    Can you write the correct plural form for the nouns?
