PLURALS

plurals

 

 

One of the rules that an English learner should know is that in a sentence when using a singular noun the verb should also be a singular one and the noun is plural the verb should be plural too.

For example:

The girl is eating an apple.

The girls are eating apples.

But there are some nouns that don’t have a plural form in English. What are they?

Well, a long list can be made but here are just some common nouns that do not have any plural forms.
