Plural nouns refer to a noun with more than one thing. Examples: plants, cats, beaches, fungi, feet.


Most plural nouns just require you to add an - s or - es to the end of the singular word.

Ex. shoes, markets, lemons, dishes

Some plural nouns are trickier though, and require you to adjust part of the singular form to fit the plural ending.

Ex. countries, feet, geese, knives

Some plurals are straight up wacky.

Ex. syllabus → syllabi
Ex. nucleus → nuclei
Ex. ox → oxen
Ex. woman → women
Ex . tooth → teeth

And some words are the same in both singular and plural.

Ex. moose, deer, premises, sheep
