For example, adding the letter 's' to 'kitten' results in 'kittens.' However, not all words can be made plural in this simple manner. Read on to learn rules that can help you to correctly form plurals in these cases.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors I have a study time table which holds materials for 1 or 2 subjects. I study each for an hour or an hour and a half. This helps me because I don't have to strain myself reading a subject for long hours and ending up losing concerntration. Rather, I pick up small amounts of information per day, which will stick in my mind.
