Irregular plural nouns

15/21
Recursos

Generalmente a los sustantivos (nouns) se les agrega “s” para transformarlos en plural, por ejemplo:

Book – Books
Paper – Papers
Apple – Apples
Key - Keys

Sin embargo, en algunas ocasiones existen reglas diferentes.

Plural de sustantivos terminados en la letra y

Cuando los sustantivos culminan con la letra “y” y esta es precedida por una consonante, la letra “y” es sustituida por “ies”. Por ejemplo:

  • Story – Stories.
  • Strawberry – Strawberries.
  • Candy – Candies

Plural de sustantivos terminados en las letras ch, x, s, sh, o

Cuando los sustantivos culminan con las letras “ch”, “x”, “s”, “sh”, “o”, se agrega “es”; por ejemplo:

  • Beach – Beaches
  • Class – Classes
  • Box – Boxes
  • Brush – Brushes
  • Tomato – Tomatoes

Plural de sustantivos terminados en las letras f, fe, lf

Cuando las palabras culminan con las letras “f”, “fe”, “lf”, estas se sustituyen por “ves”; por ejemplo:

  • Knife – Knives
  • Life - Lives
  • Wolf – Wolves

Plural de sustantivos irregulares

Existen sustantivos en los cuales su plural es totalmente diferente a las formas anteriores (Irregular plural nouns), por ejemplo:

Man – Men
Mouse – Mice
Louse – Lice
Bison – Bison
Woman – Women
Policeman - Policemen
Child – Children
Person – People
Fish – Fish

Irregular plural nouns

These are nouns that make their plural form in an irregular way. That means that you don’t use the letter “S” to form the plural, but instead it’s actually a different word or a different spelling.

Man - Men

Woman - Women

Life - Lives

Child - Children

Tooth - Teeth

Foot - Feet

Sheep - Sheep

Mouse - Mice

Goose - Geese

Ox - Oxen

Fish - Fish

Deer - Deer

Cactus - Cacti

They are some plural words that are irregular, so, they dont have a “S” at the final of the verb, like the most. In some cases, just adds another letter besides a “S”. Like:
Hero -> Heroes
In other cases, the letters changes completly, and sound diferrent, like:
Foot -> Feet
Tooth -> Teeth
Mouse -> Mice

Fish is an special case, or i would say, these words that describes a determined number of animals of the same kind, the plural word doesnt change. Example:
1 fish -> 10 fish. ( If they are the same Species)

If they are different, you could say:
“I have ten differente types of fishes on my Aquarium.”
