Plural Forms 名词复数

Hi. I always have trouble pronouncing the plural form ‘s’ for many words especially when the word ends ‘es’. Can you please help me? I heard it is also the same for possessive ‘s’.

Our question this week is about pronouncing the plural form of words.

A plural means there is more than one of something. When writing these words in English we tend to add s, es or change the ending to ies.

For example sausage becomes sausages, bus becomes buses and baby becomes babies. There are exceptions of course. But how you spell these words and how you say them can vary.

The letter s can make nouns plural

Rob and Feifei explain how the plural of noun words that end with an unvoiced sound like p,f or t, are pronounced ‘s’.

The plural form of nouns ending with voiced consonants are pronounced ‘z’. You can hear lots of examples in the programme. Plus Rob tries to pull the wool over Feifei’s eyes. What does he mean?!
