What is a plural?

Plurals, or the plural form (as opposed to the singular form) are words that denote when there is more than one of something. This is most commonly done by adding the suffix ‘-s’ or ‘-es’ to a word.

However, there are examples of irregular plurals (sheep, child/children).

Examples of singular and plural nouns

  • dog – dogs
  • girl – girls
  • book – books
  • fox – foxes
  • bush – bushes
  • patch – patches

National Curriculum English programme of study links

Pupils should be taught to add prefixes and suffixes, using the spelling rule for adding ‘-s’ or ‘-es’ as the plural marker for nouns and the third person singular marker for verbs.
