The Noun-Forms Of Singular Nouns & Plural Nouns — as-well-as the Plural-Form of Irregular Nouns

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!o re-cap from The Previous Post About “Nouns” — the Word “Noun” is a Grammatical Term which is used in both Traditional Grammar and The Grammar Of The Common Tongue.

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!n Traditional Grammar — they are considered to be one of the “Parts Of Speech” or “Word-Classes”.  In The Grammar Of The Common Tongue — they are one of the “Base Grammatical Units”“Nouns” are the types of Words that are used to refer to…

People, Places, Animals, Objects, Phenomena,
Events, & Ideas…  “Things”

Etc….

Singular & Plural Nouns

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!hen there is only one of the “Things” that the Noun is referring-to — we say that the Noun is “Singular” — it is a “Singular Noun”.  When there is more than one of those “Things” — we say that the Noun is “Plural” — it is a “Plural Noun”.

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!hen Nouns are “Plural-Form” they must be spelled differently so that they are recognizable.  USUALLY (depending on the spelling of the Noun) — we simply add an “-s” or an an “-es” ending to the Noun.

For Example…

Student

Assignment

Class

Speech

 

Teachers

However…

Irregular Nouns

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!here are some Nouns which have a much different spelling when they are changed from Singular to Plural form.  These Nouns are usually called “Irregular Nouns” — and are sometimes (incorrectly) referred to as “Irregular Plurals”.

For Example…

Child

Goose

Mouse

Person

Knife

 

Children

Geese

Mice

People

Knives

And Then…

Nouns Whose Singular & Plural Form Are Exactly The Same

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!here are is yet another type of Irregular-Noun.  And — although some people might not even consider these to fit under the classification of “Irregular-Nouns” — they absolutely are (just by the definition of the word “irregular” alone).  These are Nouns, whose form does not change at all, between Singular- & Plural-Form (which certainly IS irregular).

For Example…

Deer

Moose

Sheep

Fish

Moose

Sheep
