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.

More than one girl = girls
More than one boy = boys
(add s to the root word)
More than one box = boxes
(The word box ends with x, so you add es)
More than one bus = buses
(The word bus ends with s, so you add es)
More than one brush = brushes
(Brush ends with sh, add es)
More than one coach = coaches
(Coach ends with ch, so you add es)
Some words change to make a plural.
More than one child = children
More than one woman = women
