How To Make French Nouns Plural?

Make plural nouns in French by adding an s or x, or by substituting aux for –al.  In French grammar, here’s how you turn a singular noun into a plural noun:

  • For most nouns, you add –s to the end. For example: résultat (result) becomes résultats (results); fleur (flower) becomes fleurs (flowers).

  • Nouns that end in –eau and -eu take –x in the plural. For example: bateau (boat) becomes bateaux (boats), and manteau (overcoat) becomes manteaux (overcoats).

  • Most nouns that end in –ou take –x in the plural. For example: chou (cabbage) becomes choux (cabbages), and bijou (jewel) becomes bijoux (jewels). But some take –to make plural e.g. un clou (nail) becomes des clous (nails).

  • Nouns that end in –al drop that ending and use –aux in the plural. For example: journal (newspaper) becomes journaux (newspapers); animal (animal) becomes animaux (animals). There are some exceptions e.g. un bal, un carnaval, un récital etc. which take an s to make plural.

  • Nouns that end in –s, –x, or –z when they’re singular don’t change in the plural; you simply change the accompanying article. For example: un Français (a Frenchman) remains des Français (Frenchmen), and un nez (a nose) remains des nez (nose).
