Plural Nouns

Sustantivos plurales

Making nouns plural in Spanish is slightly more complicated than in English, but it’s not too bad.

1. If the noun ends in a vowel, add S.

casa
hombre
foto
  casas
hombres
fotos

2. If the noun ends in any consonant except Z, add ES.

mujer
rey
mes
  mujeres
reyes
meses

3. If the noun ends in Z, change the Z to a C and add ES. (Why?)

vez
lápiz
nariz
  veces
lápices
narices

What did I tell you – pretty easy, right? Now try the test.

Note: The same rules apply when pluralizing adjectives.
