- Plural form of nouns ending in consonants
- Plural form of nouns ending in vowel
In Spanish, noun endings can change depending on various factors, such as gender, number, and sometimes even the noun's specific ending. Have a look at this example of singular and plural nouns ending in a consonant:
Plural form of nouns ending in consonants
In Spanish, if a singular word ends in a consonant</b>, you usually have to add -es.
- "Toda la ciudad de Panamá es hermosa" becomes "Todas las ciudades de Panamá son hermosas." (All cities in Panama are beautiful.)
When the word already ends in an "s," add "es" if the stress of the syllable is at the end of the word. This is the case for "autobús” - “autobuses."
Note: Some words change spelling when pluralized. For example, words that end in "z" will change the "-z" to "ces" in the plural form: "lápiz” - “lápices."
Plural form of nouns ending in vowel
In Spanish, if a singular noun ends in a vowel (a,e,i,o,u), we add an "s" to make it plural.

Las clases de la profesora son muy buenas.
