Lorsner asks...
What types of words are made plural by adding "es"
Anne answers...
In general, common nouns that end in s, sh, ch, x, or z form their plurals by adding 'es.' Examples: taxes, fishes, bunches, witnesses. There are also many words ending in o, that form the plural by adding 'es,' but there are just as many that don't.
