Some Rules for Plurals

In English, we use plurals to talk about something when we have more than one:

One cat. two cats

And when we talk about things in general:

I like biscuits
Cars cause pollution

Some nouns in English are uncountable; (we can't count them.) These nouns don't take 's':

This cheese is nice.
This water is dirty
Cars cause pollution
Love makes the world go round

Common Mistakes:

Chicken is the food. Chickens are animals.
Five million is correct. Five millions is incorrect.
Furniture, information and money are uncountable.
