Plural Nouns formation

Download Download eBook Download ebook


The plural of the nouns can be formed differently, depending on the suffix of singular nouns. In most cases, we only have to add an -s to the end.

For example:
— “One cup.” ⇒ “Three cups.” = We add -s at the end of the noun.

However, there are some exceptions about plural formation, depending on the ending of nouns.

For example:
— With suffixes -ch-s, -sh, -x or -z, we add -es to the noun: “One fox.” ⇒ “Two foxes.”
— With suffix -y, we change -y to -i and add -es: “One lady.” ⇒ “Two ladies.”
— With suffixes -fe or -f, we change -f- to -v- and add -es (in some cases we just add an -s): “One life.” ⇒ “Two lives.”

Let’s revise this content within the {Form} section. Take a look at the {Example} section that shows its use within a context.
