Write a PLURAL NOUN for every letter of the alphabet


A plural noun is a word that refers to more than one of something. It’s the opposite of a singular noun, which refers to just one.

Here are some examples of plural nouns:

  • Cats (plural of cat)
  • Books (plural of book)
  • Children (plural of child)
  • Ideas (plural of idea)
  • Buildings (plural of building)

As you can see, plural nouns can be formed in different ways, depending on the word itself. Some common rules include:

  • Adding “-s” to most singular nouns (cat -> cats)
  • Adding “-es” to nouns ending in “-s,” “-x,” “-ch,” “-sh,” or “-z” (bus -> buses)
  • Changing the ending for irregular nouns (foot -> feet)

A – Ants B – Bridges C – Clouds D – Days E – Eyes F – Fears G – Gardens H – Hills I – Ideas J – Jumps K – Kisses L – Lights M – Mountains N – Noodles O – Oceans P – Pockets Q – Questions R – Raindrops S – Songs T – Touches U – Universes V – Vacations W – Waves X – Xylophones Y – Years Z – Zebras

What is an irregular plural noun?

An irregular plural noun is a noun that doesn’t follow the standard rule of forming the plural by adding “-s” or “-es.” Instead, it uses a unique spelling change or completely different word to indicate plurality.

Here are some examples of irregular plural nouns:

  • Singular: Woman, child, foot, tooth, mouse
  • Plural: Women, children, feet, teeth, mice

Some irregular plurals follow recognizable patterns, such as:

  • Nouns ending in “-f” or “-fe” often change to “-ves”: leaf -> leaves, knife -> knives.
  • Nouns ending in “-y” preceded by a consonant usually change the “y” to “i” and add “-es”: baby -> babies, city -> cities.
  • Nouns ending in “-is” usually change the “is” to “-es”: crisis -> crises, analysis -> analyses.

However, many irregular plurals are completely unpredictable and need to be memorized, like “men” for “man” and “geese” for “goose.
