Plurals are way to express a quantity of more than one with grammar. If there is a quantity of only one for the noun, we are discussing we would use the singular version. For the most part singular and plural nouns look a great deal alike. In most cases, we are just adding an -s or -es ending. There are situations where grammar confuses us and leaves us scratching our heads. For example, the words deer and sheep are both the plural and the singular. This happens in many cases when we are referring to animals. The best way to learn the plural and singular form of a word is just experience and repetition.
