Singular And Plural Nouns


Noun


The word Noun is the grammatical term which is used to identify and represent…


a “Person”, a “Place”, a “Thing”, an “Event”, or an “Idea”.


B.A. Baracus is a Person - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!


B. A. Baracas is a “Person”


Hell is a Place - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!


Hell is a “Place” (supposedly)


The Shake-Weight is a Thing - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!


The “Shake-Weight” is a “Thing” (Probably one of the greatest “things” ever invented!)


The End Of The Word - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!


The (so-called) “End Of The World” is an “Event” (One which some people are greatly looking forward to!) 👿


Religion is an Idea - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!


Religion is an “Idea” (whether you think it’s a good one or not)


Therefore, a Singular Noun refers to only ONE “person”, “place”, “thing”, “event”, or “idea”.  And, of course, a Plural Noun” refers to ANY number of the same, which is greater than one.


Changing from Singular to Plural


In most cases, to change a singular noun into a plural noun, we only need to add -s or -es to the end of the word.


For Example:


Teacher

Student

Assignment

Class

Speech

Teachers

Students

Assignments

Classes

Speeches


Irregular Plural Nouns:


There are some nouns which have a much different spelling when they are changed from singular to plural form.  These nouns are called Irregular Nouns, or are sometimes referred to as Irregular Plurals.


Such as:


Child

Goose

Mouse

Children

Geese

Mice


And then there are some nouns which do not change at all between the singular and plural form.


For example:


Deer

Moose

Fish

Deer

Moose

Fish

(although in England, they like to say “Fishes”…  Silly Brits!) 😀


Have An Excellent Day!
