Nouns and its kinds



Noun is the name of a person, place, thing, idea or event. Singular nouns can be made plural by adding ‘s’ or ‘es’ at the end of the noun. But there are some nouns which need to be modified. For example, the plural of the noun ‘city’ is ‘cities’. Here we replaced ‘y’ and added ‘ies’ in the end. 

Some nouns change entirely when we make plural. For example, mouse become mice, ox becomes oxen.
