Grade 2 - English Language
Nouns: Singular and Plural

When a noun is one in number, it is called singular. When it refers to more than item, the noun is called plural. Usually (but not always), a plural noun is obtained by adding an 's' to the end of its singular form.

Examples:
apple - apples
ball- balls
table-tables
donkey-donkeys
ox-oxen
tooth-teeth
child-children
sheep-sheep
man-men
woman-women
goose-geese
story-stories
foot-feet
knife-knives
fish-fish
fruit-fruit

The words fruit and fish also have plural form: fishes and fruits. These are used when we speak of different kinds of fish or fruit, not number. We say 'there were many fruits in the market'. 'see, how many fishes there are in this pool'. In both cases we mean different kinds of fruit and fish.

Some words are always used as plurals:
Example: The police have (not 'has') caught the thief.


Directions: Write the plurals of the words given below. Use both the singular and plural forms in sentences. Write ten more examples of singular and plural nouns. As a homework, read a book and find as many nouns as you can and group them in singular and plural categories.
