Nouns/ plural form
Message from farshid posted on 17-04-2021 at 19:09:23 (D | E | F)
Hello everyone
If a singular noun ends with 'f' or 'fe', when we want to use the plural form, we often change 'f' or 'fe' into 've' before adding s to the end.
For example: wife > wives, Half > halves. But in some nouns this rule doesn't work and those nouns don't respect the above rule.
For example: roof > roofs, belief > beliefs.
Question: Do those nouns obey a specific rule (involving vowels in the noun)or not?
If not, the way that we have to learn the plural form of them is to memorize them.

Hello Farshid.
Unfortunately, there is no simple rule--you have to memorize the exceptions.

Hello . Yes! I think we are forced to memorize them. There is no specific rule.
The best

hello, it's a problem for me as well but since there is a specific rule the best way to learn the rules is read as much as we can to memorise new words
