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

    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.
