Plural Nouns

Plural Nouns Definition 

The word plural is characterized as ‘connecting with or comprising a class of syntactic structures typically used to signify mutiple or in certain dialects more than two’ and ‘connecting with, comprising of, or containing mutiple or more than one kind or class’, as per the Merriam-Webster dictionary. So a noun that comprises or connects with beyond what one individual, spot or thing can be characterized as a plural noun.
