Forming Spanish Plurals
Here are a few simple rules to help you make any Spanish noun into a plural.
Just like in English, you can simply add –s to many Spanish words to make them into a plural.
Any noun that ends with an unstressed syllable can be made into a plural just by adding -s.
When the word ends with a consonant, you need to add –es to the singular to make it plural (NB the stress remains on the same syllable in the plural, but the accent is removed):
|café – cafés
|mamá – mamás
|papá – papás
|pie – pies
|té – tes
Nouns ending in –z change this to c in plurals:
Nouns with a final syllable ending in s which is not stressed do not change in the plural:
||umbrellas (or some umbrellas)
