Pluralizing Nouns in Spanish

In this post I am going to talk about pluralizing nouns in Spanish. Pluralizing nouns have a couple of rules as other grammatical rules in any language.

Rule 1:
If the noun ends with a vowel, add letter ‘s’ to the noun, following are some examples:

Singular Spanish Word
English Meaning
Plural Spanish Word
English Meaning
La casa
The house
Las casas
The houses
El chico
The child
Los chicos
The children

Rule 2:
If the noun ends with a consonant, add ‘es’, following are some examples:

Singular Spanish Word
English Meaning
Plural  Spanish Word
English Meaning
El papel
The paper
Los papeles
The papers
La pared
The wall
Las paredes
The Walls

Special Case:
One special case is if the nouns ends in ‘z’; then change the ‘z’ to ‘c’ and add ‘es’. For example:

Plural Spanish Word
English Meaning
El lapis
The pencil
Los lápices
The pencils
La luz
The light
La luces
The lights
