How to form plurals in English
To make a word plural, we add a letter S to the word.
book - books
If a word ends with an S, CH, SH, or X, we add "es." With some (but not all) words that end with O, we also add "es" to form the plural.
class - classes
If a word ends in a consonant and then the letter Y, we change the Y to an I and then add ES. (If the word ends in a vowel and then the letter Y, it doesn't change.)
city - cities
Some (but not all) words that end with F or FE, change to VES in the plural.
leaf - leaves
wife - wives
There are some words that change in the plural. They are irregular.
man - men
woman - women
child - children
tooth - teeth
foot - feet
Change the words to plural.
