  1. Reblogged this on ellen's esl teaching blog and commented:
    I was just thinking about posting something about irregular plurals, and then saw this lovely chart. The ones that I think are most confusing are child/children, person/people, deer/deer, and mouse/mice. Also the many clothing items that are singular, like pants, but we treat them like plurals, because we talk about them as a pair. There’s no special rule for most of these strange words, so you just have to try to memorize the exceptions, especially children and people.
