Plural nouns (irregular and regular)
🔹 We normally form the plural by adding "s" to singular nouns.
Example : bag ==> bags
🔹 We add " es" if the singular noun ends in ch, sh, s, ss or x.
Examples : wing ==> wings picture == > pictures
class ==> classes bunch==> bunches
wish ==> wishes box ==> boxes
🔹 If the singular noun ends in ‑is, the plural ending is -es:
axis ==> axes
🔹 If the noun ends in y preceded by a consonant, change the 'y' into 'i' then add 'es.'
Examples : city ==> cities lady ==> ladies
🔹 If some nouns end in "f" or "fe" change the "f" and " fe" to "ves".
Example : calf ==> calves
🔹 Some nouns form the plural by changing their vowels.
Examples : foot ==> feet mouse ==> mice
child ==> children ox ==> oxen
🔹Some plural forms are irregular, the spelling changes.
Examples : Man ==> men foot ==.> feet
child ==> children goose ==> geese
