The Rule for Making One Noun into Many Nouns:

  • When the nouns show many persons, animals, places, or things, we added ‘s’ at the end of the word.
  • Usually, two or more number of nouns shows a change in spelling. You will find the quantity of the noun mentioned in the sentence. For example: two apples, eight spoons, etc.

Examples:

If the noun refers to many objects, then we add ‘s’ at the end of the singular noun.If the noun refers to many objects, then we add ‘s’ at the end of the singular noun.
