    is there a word for words that dont require an "s" for plural.

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by dave_c, Feb 4, 2013.

    im refering to words such as sheep, salmon, moose and deer where you dont add "s or es" for plural.

    is there a specific word that refers to words such as these?

    Irregular. That's about it, as far as I know.

    No, uncountable nouns are salt, air, water and the sort. They are things that you can't say "give me a ;word;".
    What Dave asks for is irregular nouns just like Cogito said.
