Irregular Plural Nouns 4


Irregular Plural Nouns 4: Most singular nouns denote one person or thing whereas plural nouns denote more than one person or thing.

Most nouns add s to form the plural.

Add es to the nouns that end in ch, sh, s, x or z.

Add s to the nouns that end in a vowel and y.

y becomes ies in nouns that end in a consonant and y.

f becomes ves in nouns that end in f or fe.

Some nouns have different plural forms. We call these Irregular Plural Nouns. Irregular nouns form plural by changing vowels, changing the word, or adding a different ending. But, some nouns have the same form in the singular and the plural. In this activity you have to type the correct irregular plural of the given singular nouns.
