Noun

plural (plural plurals)

  1. (граматика, uncountable) The plural number.
    • 1895, William W. Goodwin, A Greek Grammar. Revised and enlarged., strana 34:
      "There are three numbers; the singular, the dual, and the plural. [...] The dual is sometimes used to denote two objects, but even here the plural is more common."
  2. (граматика, countable) A word in the form in which it potentially refers to something other than one person or thing; and other than two things if the language has a dual form.

Usage notes

  • Many languages have singular for one item and plural for more than one item. Some languages also have a dual form for two, a trial form for three, or a paucal form for several (e.g. Fijian). Other languages do not distinguish any of these categories.
  • While the plural form generally refers to two or more persons or things, that is not always the case. The plural form is often used for zero persons or things, for fractional things in a quantity greater than one, and for people or things when the quantity is unknown.
  • In English, the plural is most often formed simply by adding the letter "s" to the end of a noun, e.g. apple/apples. There are many exceptions, however, such as echo/echoes, mouse/mice, child/children, deer/deer (same word), etc.
