Introduction

Imenice [nouns] se odnose na osobu, mjesto, stvar, događaj, tvar ili pojavu.

Množina [plural] se koristi kako bi se ukazalo na to da postoji više od jedne osobe, životinje, mjesta ili stvari. Neke imenice ne prate uobičajena pravila tvorbe, one su nepravilne [irregular] pa se i njihova množina tvori drugačije.

Form

Imenice s nepravilnom množinom ne tvore se dodavanjem sufiksa -s ili -es. Ne postoje pravila koja objašnjavaju kako se tvori množina tih imenica. Najčešće imenice s nepravilnom množinom su:

Singular Plural
child children
foot feet
man men
mouse mice
person people
tooth teeth
woman women

Example

  • ChildWe have three children.
  • FootMy feet are sore.
  • ManThere are some men outside the house.
  • MouseI found three mice in the barn.
  • PersonThey are such nice people.
  • ToothHe lost two teeth yesterday.
  • WomanThey are very beautiful women.

Use

Nepravilna množina upotrebljava se jednako kao i ona pravilna; razlika je samo u tvorbi.

Summary

Ne postoji pravilo za tvorbu nepravilne množine [irregular plural] pa ih treba naučiti napamet.

Najčešće korištene su: child ⇒ childrenfoot ⇒ feetman ⇒ menperson ⇒ peoplewoman ⇒ women

Naprimjer:
— “An ox.” ⇒ “Three oxen.” / “Three oxes.“
— “There is only one goose in the street.” ⇒ “There are five geese in the street.”
