MORE THAN ONE
SPELLING RULES FOR PLURALS
Long 8 Measure Introduction
Singular means one. (snap, snap)
Make a plural by adding "s".
But there's another rule we learn
To spell the rest.
Look at the end for "x" or "s", "s-h" or "c-h",
So we've heard
We need to add the suffix "e-s"
To the word.
And then with words like mouse and mice,
And goose and geese, and man and men,
We change the word to make the plural.
That's the rule my friend.
