Singular and Plural Nouns -6th Grade Grammar

Singular and Plural Nouns

A singular noun names one person, place, thing, or idea. 

A plural noun names more than one person, place, thing, or idea. Most plural nouns are formed by adding -s or -es to a singular noun. 
Examples:
        beaches
        bicycles
        pears
        boxes

If a word ends in y and the letter in front of the y is a vowel, then add -s
Examples:
        toy>>> toys
        monkey>>> monkeys
        play>>> plays

If the letter in front of the y is a consonant, then drop the y and add -ies.
Examples:
        flurry>>> flurries
        city>>> cities

Special Changes to Make Plurals

If a noun ends in -f, sometimes add -s, but sometimes change the f to a v and add -es to form the plural. reef, reefs; half, halves
If a noun ends in -lf, change the f to a v and add -es to form the plural. wolf, wolves; calf, calves
For most nouns ending in -fe, change the f to a v and add -s to form the plural. safe, safes; life, lives
