HAVE FUN WITH ENGLISH. We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes; But the plural of ox became oxen not oxes. One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese, Yet the plural of moose is not meese. Plural of mouse is mice But plural of house is not hice.

# We speak of a brother and also of brethren, # but though we say mother we never say methren. # Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him, # but imagine the feminine, she, shis and shim.
