به نظرتان چند اسم در زبان انگلیسی وجود دارد که جمع استثنا داشته باشد؟ آیا این جمع های استثنا خود از قاعده خاصی پیروی می کنند؟ در ادامه این پست از «دهکده زبان» همراه من شوید تا در قالب یک شعر انگلیسی با برخی از اسم های مستثنا آشنا شوید.

Irregular Plural Nouns

We'll begin with box, and the plural is boxes;

But the plural of ox should be oxen, not oxes.

 

Then one fowl is goose, but two are called geese;

Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.

 

You may find a lone mouse or a whole lot of mice,

But the plural of house is houses, not hice.

 

If the plural of man is always called men,

When couldn't the plural of pan be called pen?

 

The cow in the plural may be cows or kine,

But the plural of vow is vows, not vine.

 

And I speak of a foot, and you show me your feet,

But I give a boot ... would a pair be called beet?

 

If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,

Why shouldn't the plural of booth be called beeth?

 

If the singular is this and plural is these,

Why shouldn't the plural of kiss be nicknamed kese?

 

Then one may be that, and three may be those,

Yet the plural of hat would never be hose;

 

We speak of a brother, and also of brethren,

But though we say mother, we never say methren.

 

So our English, I think you will all agree,

Is the trickiest language you ever did see.
