The spelling rule is: when the word ends in ‘s’, ‘ss’, ‘z’, ‘ch’, ‘sh’, or ‘x’ you add ‘es’. This rule was created centuries ago, as a means of stopping the plural ‘s’ clashing with these letters.
If a word ends in ‑s, ‑sh, ‑ch, ‑x, or ‑z, you add ‑es. For almost all other nouns, add -s to pluralize.
The spelling rule is: when the word has a vowel (a, e, i, o, u) before the letter ‘y’, you add the letter ‘s’ and when the word has a consonant (b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, m, n, p, q, r, s, t, v, w, x, y, z) before the letter ‘y’, you remove the ‘y’ and replace it with ‘ies’.
Plural Noun Rules To make regular nouns plural, add ‑s to the end. If the singular noun ends in ‑s, -ss, -sh, -ch, -x, or -z, add ‑es to the end to make it plural. In some cases, singular nouns ending in -s or -z, require that you double the -s or -z prior to adding the -es for pluralization.
Present simple: spelling When the verb ends in -ch, -ss, -sh, -x or -zz, we add -es. When the verb ends in a consonant + -y we change y to i and add -es. But when the verb ends in a vowel + -y we just add -s. Have, go, do and be are irregular.
noun. man·go | \ ˈmaŋ-(ˌ)gō \ plural mangoes also mangos.
When the letter before the last “y” is a vowel (a, e, i, o and u), the noun takes “s” to become plural. But when the letter before the last “y” is a consonant (all other alphabets apart from a, e, i, o and u), the noun takes “ies” to become plural.
Subject pronouns are those pronouns that perform the action in a sentence. They are I, you, he, she, we, they, and who.

If the “y” is preceded by a vowel, it is left unchanged. Thus “boy” becomes “boys”, “key” -> “keys”, “play” -> “played”, but “story” becomes “stories”, “company” -> “companies”, “party” -> “partied”.
When to Use Tomatoes The singular spelling of tomato doesn’t contain the letter “E,” so it is somewhat understandable that people would get confused when the plural does. The correct plural spelling is tomatoes. Tomatos is a common misspelling.
Possessive pronouns describe what things belong to which people, like “her shoe” or “the book is mine.” Possessive pronouns can be adjectives, like “his bicycle,” or they can stand in for nouns, like “the seats are theirs.” Neither of these forms should have apostrophes to show possession — so it’s ours (not our’s)

How do you spell potato? The singular spelling of potato doesn’t contain the letter “E,” so it is somewhat understandable that people would get confused when the plural does. The correct plural spelling is potatoes.
We add an e to the plural of potato and tomato because if the last vowel in a word is long, we add another letter to separate the vowel from the ending. The same goes for baby and sky. The y has an long e sound so we add “i” before we add “es”.
