Grammar: Count Nouns

singular noun names one person, place, or thing. A plural noun names more than one.

Add -s to most nouns to show more than one. Add -es to nouns that end in ch, sh, ss, x, z, and sometimes o.

For count nouns that end in a consonant plus y, change the y to i and add –es. For nouns that end in a vowel plus y, just add -s.

Never change the base spelling of a proper name. Just add -s or -es depending on the final consonant.

 

Vocabulary Strategy: Multiple Meaning Words

Some words have more than one meaning. You can use context, or the words near the word, to figure out the correct meaning.
