Grammar[edit]

Plurals of Nouns[edit]

Almost every portuguese word ends with s

to know how to make the plural: The suffix -s is added normally The -es is added when the word ends with r or z; in some words ending with ão, the o is removed to add -es (Pão → Pães). The -is' is added in some words ending with al, el, ol or ul (Pastel → Pastéis (the accute is added for the pronunciation)) The -ns is added in words ending with m (Atum → Atuns) The -ões is added in some words ending with ão. (ão is removed and then -ões is added) (Limão → Limões)

Regular Plurals[edit]

Casa → Casas

Irregular Plurals[edit]

Qualquer (any) becomes quaisquer. Most words that end with 'x' don't change: Tórax (thorax. chest), inox (Stainless steel)
