Easy Learning English – ELE


  • Grammar Tips 
  • a/an, plural nouns
  • We use “a” before words beginning with a consonant: a birda friend
  • We use “an” before words beginning with a vowel: an artistan ankle
  • Do you know how many are there vowel letters in English alphabet?
  • Can you remember?
  • So, let me review vowel letters in English too.
  • We have 26 alphabet letters in English and there are five vowel letters in it and all the rest are consonant letters.
  • A – E – O – I – U, these are vowel letters in English alphabet letters.
  • There are no articles for plural words: peppers, three books, keys
  • A book – three books – an open book – a key – a knife – a glass – a man – a box
  • Open books – a close window – close windows – a big mouth – a big head
  • a/an, plural nouns
  • Regular plurals:
  • We have two kinds of form for a noun.
  • Singular form that use just for one things. Like (An applea dog)
  • Plural form that use for more than one things, like (applesdogs)
  • most nouns can change from singular form to plurals form with adding “s” to the end of singular form.
  • For example: (an apple  apples) without the article form.
  • Pepper ⇒ peppershouse  housessalt  saltsshirt  shirts
  • Some nouns ending in (-s, -ss, -sh, -ch, -x, -o) in singular form change to plural form with adding “es” to the end of singular form.
  • For example: (a bus  busses) without the article form.
  • glass  glasses - tomato  tomatoes - bush  bushessandwich  sandwiches - box  boxes watch  watches
  • But we have some exception form too but few like (A photo  photos)
  • And nouns ending in vowel with “-y” at the end of it like “A Toy” change this way
  • A toy  toys    pay attention before “y” we have a vowel lettero” and as we know it before we have five vowel letters (aIeou).
  • For more example look at these words: boy  boys – key  keysdonkey  donkeys
  • And nouns ending in consonant with “-y” at the end of it like “A strawberry” change this way:    A strawberry  strawberries pay attention before “y” we have consonant letter.
  • For example:  A dictionary   dictionaries – fly  flies – party  parties
  • We also have two kinds of plural forms for a noun
  • So, there are two forms for plural nouns, Regular plurals and Irregular plurals
  • For example:
  • Nouns ending in “-f, -fe” in singular form easily change and follow rules
  • For example:  leaf  leaves – loaf  loaves – wife  wives – knife  knives
  • But some nouns have irregular plurals.
  • Each of them forms the plural in a different way.
  • Have a look at these nouns with different plural forms:
  • man  menwoman  women –  child  childrentooth  teeth – foot  feet – mouse  mice
  • and there are also nouns that don’t change in the plural form.
  • For example:  sheep  sheep – fish  fishdeer  deer
  • Best wishes – Good luck
