Singular and Plural Nouns in English

Singular and Plural Nouns

Singular Noun

Singular means one and talks about only one person, place, thing or animal.
For a singular noun we don’t need to add any letters at the end.

For Examples : girl, flower, lunch, bus, house, glass.

Plural Nouns

Plural means many and talks about more than one person, place,  thing or animal.
We add s or es at the end of plural nouns.

When writing plural nouns we usually put the letter s at the end of a singular noun to make it plural.

For Examples :

cat will become cats, coin will be coins and pizza will be pizzas.

However when a singular noun ends with the letters s, ss, sh, ch, x or z we add the letters es at the end

For Examples :

church will become churches bush will be bushes and class will become classes

The Examples of singular and plural nouns in sentences :

  1. I have one banana in my bag.
  2. We ate many dishes last night.
  3. Can you get 2 boxes for me ?
  4. Mother sits on a bench.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
    hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and
    tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
