    Irregular Plural Nouns

    Most English nouns form their plural by adding either


    - s (such as in: keys, books, bells, shoes, etc) or

    - es (such as in: boxes, benches, wristwatches).

    These are plural nouns that are said to follow a regular pattern. But not all nouns agree to this standard pattern.

    They have irregular plural forms such as -- woman / women, ox / oxen, child / children.

    We could have a full lesson someday, but for now, test your knowledge by completing the sentences below.

    Fill in each space with the plural form of the noun in brackets.
