Homework Help: French for Mischa

Posted by SraJMcGin on Thursday, September 20, 2007 at 10:25pm.

This is what would not post:


PLURAL OF NOUNS

Most French nouns, like most English nouns, form their plural by adding s to the singular:

SINGULAR PLURAL

le garçon, the boy les garçons, the boys
lfélève, the pupil les élèves, the pupils
la feuille, the leaf les feuilles, the leaves

Nouns ending in -s, -x or -z remain unchanged in the plural:

le fils, the son les fils, the sons
la voix, the voice les voix, the voices
le nez, the nose les nez, the noses.

Nouns ending in -eau and -eu add x to form the plural. Most nouns ending in -al, change -al to -aux in the plural:

lfoiseau, the bird les oiseaux, the birds
le neveu, the nephew les neveux, the nephews
le cheval, the horse les chevaux, the horses

A few nouns have irregular plurals:

lfoeil (m.), the eye les yeux, the eyes
le ciel, the sky les cieux, the skies
le travail, the work les travaux, the works

It is a bit more than you need at this time, but you can save it for later.
