Plurals - English Grammar for Kids.

A noun names an 🔦 object, 🧍person or 🏨 place.

When a noun is singular1️⃣, it means there is 1️⃣ one of them. When a noun is plural2️⃣, it means there is more than one2️⃣.

Singular and plural nouns explanation

To make most nouns plural we simply add -s.

For example,

cat = catS

dog = dogS

ring= ringS

Some nouns do not follow this rule.

1. If a noun ends in a 'y', to make the noun plural, the 'y' is removed and '-ies' is added:

baby👶 = babies👶👶

party🎉= parties🥳🥳

2. If a noun ends🔚 in 'f' or 'fe', to make the noun plural the 'f' or 'fe' becomes 'ves': calf🐄 = calves 🐄🐄

knife🔪 = knives🔪🔪 3. If a noun ends in s / ss / ch / sh / x then we add '-es' when we make it plural: bus🚌 = buses🚌🚌

kiss💋 = kisses💋💋

church = churches

brush🖌️ = brushes🖌️🖌️

fox🦊 =foxes🦊🦊

A useful 💡 way to remember this is that if the word "hisses"🐍 or "buzzes"🐝, the plural has an -es on the end.
