Module 2

  1. 1. WHAT ARE THEY? BY KENY BARUCH GARCÍA
  2. 2. What are they? To identify objects in plural number such bananas, radios, etc. “They are + plural noun” They are + = They are bananas Most nouns make their plurals by simply adding –S to the end as bananas.
  3. 3. Plural nouns • Most objects simply add –S or es to the object name in singular. • Nouns that end in a consonant + -y change to ies in plural. • Similarly, happens with words as tomato and potato which give tomatoes and potatoes and the other words with ending of a vocal form their plural by adding S.
  4. 4. Examples Singular • It is a check • It is a radio • It is an ash tray • It is a university • It is a glass Plural • They are checks • They are radios • They are ash trays • They are universities • They are glasses
  5. 5. An irregular plural noun is an irregular noun in the plural form. An irregular noun is a noun that becomes plural by changing it’s spelling in other ways than adding an “s” or “es” to the end of the word. Man-men Woman- women Foot-feetChild-childrenTooth-teeth
  6. 6. Structural scheme for identifying of singular or plural objects including their corresponding numeral. “It is one + plural noun” “They are two (three, etc) + plural noun” It is one : It is one table They are three + : They are three tables.
  7. 7. How many or much? •For plurals, use many. (e.g. How many books do we need?) •For non-countable things, use much. (e.g. How much oil do we need?)
  8. 8. Examples How much orange juice do you want? How many biscuits did you eat? There were too many people in the queue, so I didn’t wait. The teacher gave us too much homework. I saw many toucans in the tree.
