  • Nouns ending in -al, -ail, or -au in the singular end in -aux in the plural, except for un bal, un carnaval, un festival, and un récital. (#2,6)
  • Nouns ending in -eu or -eau in the singular add -x in the plural. (#7)
  • Nouns ending in -ou end in -oux in the plural but there are exceptions; un clou, un sou, un trou (des…noun+s)
  • Some nouns have an alternate form in the plural. (#8)
