Irregular Plural Nouns
Most nouns are changed from their singular forms to their plural forms by adding an -s or an -es. For example: bird/birds, beach/beaches.
Some nouns, however, are made plural in other ways, such as by changing their spelling. For example: tooth/teeth. Some nouns have the same singular and plural forms. For example: sheep/ sheep, fish/fish.
Plural forms that are made by one of these other methods are called irregular plural nouns.
