Singular nouns definition:

Let’s review. A singular noun is a word that refers to one single person, place, or thing such as a dog, life, or pillow. A plural noun is the form of a word that represents more than one person, place, or thing such as dogs, lives, and pillows. All plural nouns use the same verb forms – whether we’re referring to “forks” or “flyers on the wall.” Each singular noun has its own unique spelling and pronoun.
