Sinhala Plural

Learning the Sinhala Plural is very important because its structure is used in every day conversation. The more you master it the more you get closer to mastering the Sinhala language. But first we need to know what the role of Plural is in the structure of the grammar in Sinhala.

Sinhala 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. Here are some examples:
