Through noun study we introduce some of the nuances of English spelling.
There are ten boxes for covering the rules for plural nouns. Today I am sharing the first three of these boxes.
Plural Box I - adding 's'
Plural Box II - nouns ending with a sibilant sound add 'es'
Plural Box III - nouns ending in '-f' '-fe' '-lf' that have a long vowel 'f' becomes 'v'
And be sure to enjoy some healthy discussion of the how and why the English language has evolved the way it has :)
