3. When the noun ends with a z, get rid of the z and add –ces.

Ex: lápizlápices



4. If a noun ends in –ión or ón, drop the written accent and add –es.

Ex: sillónsillones(si llo nes)

cancióncanciones(can cio nes)

televisióntelevisiones (te le vi sio nes)

(They don’t need the written accent because the nouns now follow the accent rule. )

5. Some English nouns can be either singular or plural without changing their spelling.

Ex: elk can be either singular or plural. The only way to know is through context. A few Spanish words work the same way.

Ex: paraguas (umbrella)

sacapuntas (pencil sharpener)

crisis (crisis)

6. There are some nouns that only exist in the singular form, even though they refer to more than one person or object.

Ex: gente (people)
