If not, then take a look at this standard definition and example of singular and plural for class 2 to know it better.

Rules for Changing Singular to Plural for Class 2

Now that you know about what are the singular and plural forms of nouns, here comes the fun part. Master these simple conversion rules and you are done preparing for at least this portion of your English grammar syllabus. 

1️⃣ Add ‘s’ to the end of a singular noun to make it plural

2️⃣ Add ‘es’ for nouns ending in ‘s,’ ‘sh,’ ‘ch,’ ‘x,’ or ‘z’ to pluralise.

3️⃣ In some special cases (Irregular plurals) you do not need to follow the ‘s/-es’ rules. Take a look at the following examples for better understanding. 

  • Change the vowel sound
  • Change the ending of the noun completely

For Example – Child -> Children, Goose -> Geese

Bonus Rule – Uncountable Nouns don’t change form from Singular to Plural

Unlike the rules you have studied so far, uncountable nouns like water, air, sugar, etc. do not have singular or plural forms. Therefore, you must denote them with words like – much, little, some, a lot, etc.
