Grammar


Remember that a noun names a person, place, thing,
animal, or idea. Singular nouns name one person,
place, thing, animal, or idea, while plural nouns
name more than one. Remember the rules for
making nouns plural: most times you can add an –s;
if the word ends with s, ch, x, sh, add –es; if the
word ends with y, most times you will change the y
to i and add –es.
Some hints for finding singular or plural noun
include:



A singular noun may have the word a or an in front of it.
A plural noun never has the word a or an in front of it.
A singular and a plural noun may have the word the in front
of it.
