What is a plural noun?

A plural noun has the suffix -s or -es added and means there is more than one of the object. When there is only one item, this is singular.

Examples of plural nouns

I have eaten a cake.
The noun cake is singular (only one cake).

I have eaten all the cakes.
The noun cakes is plural (more than one cake).

When nouns end in x, sh, s, ss, ch, tch or z, the suffix -es is added and creates an extra syllable (or beat) to the word.

We opened the box.
The noun box is singular (only one box).

We opened the boxes.
The noun boxes is plural (more than one box).

Some plural nouns do not follow the rule of adding -s or -es and are referred to as irregular.

I saw a mouse in the kitchen.
I saw mice in the kitchen.

The woman met her friend in the cafe.
The women met in the cafe.
