Understanding Irregular Plural Nouns
Irregular plural nouns are nouns that do not follow the normal rules of making plurals. For example, the plural of mouse is mice, not mouses. Sometimes, the plural of a noun is the same as the singular. For example, the plural of sheep is sheep. There are also some nouns that change spelling when they become plural. For example, the plural of tooth is teeth.
The word 'oxen' is the only English word that has a plural ending but no singular form. The word 'mouse' is an exception to the general rule that words ending in '-ouse' are plural. The word 'sheep' is the only English word that has the same singular and plural form.
