Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
potato - potatos. The correct plural of potato is potatoes, not potatos. Some words are different from all the rules above. Why does mouse become mice and house become houses?
hero - heros. Here are more irregular plurals - some words ending in 'o' that just have an 's' added to make them plural. Hero should become heroes, though.
thief - thiefs. There are exceptions to the 'f'/'fe' changing to 'ves' rule and roof, cliff and belief are among them. Thieves, however, is the plural of thief.
handkerchief - handkerchieves. For nouns that end in 'f' or 'fe' the plural is made by changing the 'f' or 'fe' to 'ves'. Chief is an exception to this rule; it becomes chiefs. Therefore handkerchief becomes handkerchiefs.
journey - journies. If a noun ends with a vowel and 'y' the plural is made by just adding an 's'. Journeys is the correct plural of journey.
party - partys. If a noun ends in a consonant (a consonant is a letter that is not a vowel) and 'y', take off the 'y' and add 'ies' to make the plural. Party should become parties.
book - bookes. Most plurals are made by adding the letter 's' to the word, so book becomes books. Words that end in 'ch', 'sh', 'x', 'o' or 's' need to have 'es' added to make them plural.
