Lesson 3: Singular and Plural Nouns, Regular and Irregular Nouns [03:46]


Rule 1

To form the plural of most nouns you simply add an s to the end of the noun.


Rule 2

If the noun ends in sh, ch, x, s, orzaddesto make it plural.

  • Notice that these words all end in a “hissing” sound.


Practice

Go to page 3 in your Weasel packet. Complete numbers 13 – 30.

End Lesson 1


Rule 3

If a noun ends in a consonant plus y, the y changes to ibefore es is added. Note: If the noun ends in a vowel plus y, just add s.

What are the vowels?

a

e

i

o

u

All the other letters are

consonants.


So

Play ends in a (vowel) and y therefore the plural form is plays.

Monkeys ends in e (vowel) and y therefore the plural form is monkeys.

Likewise

Party ends in t (consonant) and y therefore the plural form is parties.

Candy ends in d (consonant) and y therefore the plural form is candies.


Practice

Go to page 5 in your Weasel packet. Complete numbers 1 – 18.


Rule 4

Most of the words that end with f, ff, or fe are made plural by changing the ending to -ves.


There are exceptions that must be memorized or looked up.
