How do you form a plural noun?
Last Updated: 14th April, 2020
- To make regular nouns plural, add -s to the end.
- If the singular noun ends in -s, -ss, -sh, -ch, -x, or -z, add -es to the end to make it plural.
- In some cases, singular nouns ending in -s or -z, require that you double the -s or -z prior to adding the -es for pluralization.
