Regular and Irregular Nouns in English – Summary Charts

These charts look at the spelling rules used when making nouns plural. They cover both regular and irregular plural forms.

Plurals Summary Chart
This chart is a summary of the nine spelling rules that appear below, all in one handy place. It is great as a quick reference guide for students.
Regular Nouns
Nouns where we add an -S to make them plural. There are no other changes to the noun. The example nouns are car, dog, book, house, and apple.
Nouns ending in S, CH, SH, X, Z
Nouns with these endings and where we need to add -ES to make them plural. The example nouns are bus, match, dish, box, and quiz.
Nouns ending in F or FE
Nouns with these endings and how we remove them and add -VES to make the nouns plural. The example nouns are leaf, wolf, life, and knife. There are two exceptions to this rule that also appear in this chart: roofs and cliffs.
Nouns ending in VOWEL + Y
These are regular nouns where we just add the -S to the plural. The example nouns are day, key, boy, guy, and donkey. This chart exists to be able to compare it with the next chart about nouns ending in a consonant + Y.
Nouns ending in CONSONANT + Y
We remove the end Y and add -IES to these nouns to make them plural. The example nouns are city, baby, story, party, and country.
Irregular Nouns
These are nouns that have a completely different plural form compared to its singular form. The example nouns are man, child, foot, tooth, mouse, and person.
Nouns ending in VOWEL + O
These are regular nouns where we just add the S to make them plural. The example nouns are zoo, radio, stereo, video, and kangaroo. This chart exists to be able to compare it with the next chart about nouns ending in a consonant + O.
Nouns ending in CONSONANT + O
We add -ES to these nouns to make them plural. The example nouns are hero, echo, tomato, and potato. We also show some exceptions to the rule where we only add an -S. These words are piano and photo.
Nouns that don’t change in plural
These are the nouns that have the same form in singular and plural. The example nouns are sheep, deer, fish, series, species

These charts can be used for decorating the classroom wall or as a part of literary centers. Some teachers also photocopy these and make a booklet for students.
