Portuguese Plural

Learning the Portuguese Plural displayed below is vital to the language. Portuguese Plurals are grammatical numbers, typically referring to more than one of the referent in the real world. In the English language, singular and plural are the only grammatical numbers.

Grammar Tips:

While in English, the plural is formed by adding (s) to the singular. In Portuguese, to form the plural of nouns and adjectives we add (-s) to words ending in a vowel and (-es) to words ending in a consonant. Here are some examples:

Um amigo (a friend) becomes: Uns amigos (some friends)

Uma mulher (one woman) becomes: Umas mulheres (some women)

Este é o meu carro vermelho (this is my red car) becomes: Estes são os meus carros vermelhos (these are my red cars)


Here are some examples:
