Plurals A plural shows that there is more than one noun. Usually you just add an s to the end of the noun. book + s = books When the noun ends in a consonant-y, drop the y and add ies. baby + s = babies When the noun ends in ch, o, s, sh, or x, you add es to the end of the noun. bench + es = benches tomato + es = tomatoes kiss + es = kisses dish + es = dishes fox + es = foxes Possessives A possessive shows that someone owns something. Usually when there are two nouns in a row, the first one owns the second. To show possession add an apostrophe s to the end of the first noun, like this: ’s. Jerry’s tablet the dog’s collar If the noun is plural, the apostrophe goes AFTER the s. the girls’ house (There is one house that belongs to two girls.) Some plurals are weird. Luckily there are only a few of these. More than one person is people. More than one goose is geese. the Gildarrys’ car (The car belongs to two people with the same last name. You don’t change the spelling of a person’s last name when you make it plural.) three boys’ comic books (Each of the boys owns at least one comic book.)
