Examples of Irregular Plural Nouns

Some irregular nouns take on the plural form by first changing the last letter of the word before adding “s.”
Words that end in “f” are a good example of this case.
To make such a word plural, you change the “f” to “ve” and add an “s.”

Below are plural nouns that end in "ves":    

More than one calf = calves    

More than one knife = knives    

More than one loaf = loaves    

More than one shelf = shelves    

More than one wolf = wolves    

 

 

Below are irregular nouns made plural by changing vowels, changing the word, or adding a different ending:    

More than one man = men    

More than one person = people    

More than one mouse = mice    

More than one child = children    

More than one foot = feet    

More than one tooth = teeth
