GRAMMAR TIP:What Are Singular and Plural Nouns?
In the English language, nouns are inflected for grammatical number that is, singular or plural. The plural morpheme in English is suffixed to the end of most nouns. Regular English plurals fall into three classes, depending upon the sound that ends the singular form: Where a singular noun ends in a sibilant sound /s/, /z/, /ʃ/, /ʒ/, /tʃ/ or /dʒ/ the plural is formed by adding /ɨz/. The spelling adds -es, or -s if the singular already ends in -e: When the singular form ends in a voiceless consonant (other than a sibilant) /p/, /t/, /k/, /f/ or /θ/ the plural is formed by adding /s/. The spelling adds -s. For all other words (i.e. words ending in vowels or voiced non-sibilants) the regular plural adds /z/, represented orthographically by -s.

to find something that your students will enjoy. When learning vocabulary, students initially learn the singular form of nouns rather than both the singular and plural forms because this approach makes it easier for them to increase their vocabulary more quickly. Later on, as students start learning verbs and making sentences, they also have to learn the plural forms for all those nouns they learned earlier on.
