英语名词变复数的规则及练习题
  1. 名词 名词可以分为专有名词和普通名词,专有名词是某个(些)人,地方,机构等专有的名 称,如 Beijing,China 等。普通名词是一类人或东西或是一个抽象概念的名词,如:book, sadness 等。普通名词又可分为下面四类:
  1)个体名词:表示某类人或东西中的个体,如:gun。
  2)集体名词:表示若干个个体组成的集合体,如:family。
  3)物质名词:表示无法分为个体的实物,如:air。
  4)抽象名词:表示动作、状态、品质、感情等抽象概念,如:work。 个体名词和集体名词可以用数目来计算,称为可数名词,物质名词和抽象名词一般无法用数 目计算,称为不可数名词。

  6) 另外还有一些名词, 其复数形式有时可表示特别意思, goods 货物, 如: waters 水域, fishes (各种)鱼。

  1.4 不可数名词量的表示

These cakes are sweet. 这些蛋糕很好吃。 (可数) b. 当物质名词表示该物质的种类时,可数。例如: This factory produces steel. We need various steels. (不可数)

  1.7 名词的格 英语中有些名词可以加"'s"来表示所有关系,带这种词尾的名词形式称为该名词的所有 格,如:a teacher's book。名词所有格的规则如下:
  1) 单数名词词尾加"'s",复数名词词尾没有 s,也要加"'s",如 the boy's bag 男孩的书包, men's room 男厕所。
  2) 若名词已有复数词尾-s ,只加" ' ",如:the workers' struggle 工人的斗争。
  3) 凡不能加"'s"的名词, 都可以用"名词+of +名词"的结构来表示所有关系, 如: title of the the song 歌的名字。
  4) 在表示店铺或教堂的名字或某人的家时,名词所有格的后面常常不出现它所修饰的名词, 如:the barber's 理发店。
  5) 如果两个名词并列,并且分别有's,则表示"分别有";只有一个's,则表示'共有'。例如: John's and Mary's rooms(两间) John and Mary's room(一间)

  6) 复合名词或短语,'s 加在最后一个词的词尾。例如:a month or two's absence
