Irregular Plural Nouns 6


Irregular Plural Nouns 6: 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 a fixed plural form and take a plural verb. They are not used in the singular. In this activity you have to type the correct irregular plural of the given singular nouns.
