The origin of the modern English plural

Written by on

The English plural was not always the way it is today. This is evident in the fact that some words have different plurals. In most cases you just add an ‘s’ to indicate a plural e.g. cat – cats. However, there are exceptions like children, women and geese. Why is this?

If you take a look at this video from TED, you will find that our modern plural words originate from somewhere you might not expect.
