                             FORMATION OF PLURAL

Almost all nouns get plural form by adding -s which is pronounced as:

/s/ after voiceless consonants: books, cups, coats                                                               /z/ after voiced consonants or vowels: pigs, beds, journeys.

If the noun ends with-ch, -s, -sh, -x, or -z, add -es to form the plural:
singular
plural
church
churches
bus
buses
fox
foxes
blintz blintzes

As a general rule, most nouns ending in -o add -sto make the plural:

singular
 plural
solo
 solos
zero
 zeros
avocado

  •  Those that have a vowel before the final -o always just add -s:
singular
 plural
studio
 studios

  •  There are nouns ending in -othat are always spelled with-es in the plural:
