There are still few nouns that are a little confusing when changed to their plural form. These are some that I remember:
Ox = is NOT oxes
The correct plural form is OXEN.
With "-en" as the suffix added. Although most of nouns ending in "x" are forming their plural by just adding "-es", ox is an exception.
brother-in-law = it is NOT brother-in-laws
If we wanted to mean two or more "brother-in-law", the correct form should be:
Just as we do not refer to the "law" as plural, we are referring to "brother" more than one. Literal explanation. Same is true with "attorney-at-law", "sister-in-law":
I will be updating this post from time to time as I encounter similar confusing plural form of nouns.
