SPELLING There are some words that are difficult to remember how to spell. Plurals For example, changing a word from singular to plural can be confusing. There are words that do not follow any specific rules when changing from singular to plural. These are called irregular plurals: Examples: More than one mouse = mice More than one man = men More than one person = people More than one child = children More than one goose = geese Sometimes you do not have to change a word at all when making a word plural: Examples: More than one deer = deer More than one moose = moose Sometimes you have to change certain letters when changing a word from singular to plural: Changing f to v Examples: More than one shelf = shelves (change the f to v and add es) Moe than one life = lives (change the f to v and add es) Changing y to i Examples: More than one baby = babies (change the y to i and add es) More than one lady = ladies (change the y to i and add es) Sometimes you just have to add es when changing a word from singular to plural: Examples: More than one bus= buses More than one dish = dishes © Copyright NewPath Learning.

And sometimes you only have to add an s when changing a word from singular to plural: Examples: More than one dog = dogs More than one car = cars Learning how to write a possessive noun can be tricky as well: Possessive Nouns Possessive nouns are words that show ownership. There are some rules to follow when changing a noun into possessive noun: To make a singular noun possessive, you have to add an apostrophe + s (‘s). Sister’s jacket: The jacket belongs to the sister. Mark’s car: The car belongs to Mark. If a plural noun does NOT end in s, you have to add an apostrophe + s to make it a possessive noun. Children’s toys: The toys belong to the children. If a plural noun DOES end in s, you only have to add an apostrophe to the noun to make it possessive. dogs’ collars: The collars belong to the dogs. If a proper noun ends in –s, you only have to add an apostrophe to the noun to make it possessive. Smiths’ backyard: The backyard belongs to the Smith family.
