Plural Nouns, Lesson 2

How to make a noun mean more than one (plural):

The plural form of most nouns is created just by adding the letter s.
Example: If you mean more than one girl, you add s to the end of the word.
1 girl 3 girls

Words ending in certain letters need es at the end.
Words that end in -ch, sh, x, s or s-like sounds require an -es for the plural:


1 watch 2 watches
1 dish 6 dishes
1 box 4 boxes
1 bus 3 buses
