Singular and Plural Nouns

A singular noun names one person, place, idea, or thing.  
        song
        inch
        The campers told stories around the campfire
        Bright sparks drifted up into the sky
        The wind blew through the branches of the trees. 
        A full moon peeked above the top of the mountain.

A plural noun names more than one person, place, idea, or thing. Most plural nouns are formed by adding -s or -es. 
Examples:
        song>>> songs
        inch>>> inches
        The campers told stories around the campfire. 
        Bright sparks drifted up into the sky.
