In grammar, the word plural denotes a quantity of more than one (in contrast to singular, which denotes a quantity of one). For example:
- deux livres, cent livres, beaucoup de livres - two books, one hundred books, many books
(livres is plural, it is a plural noun)
- trois montres, des montres, plusieurs montres - three watches, some watches, several watches
(montres is a plural noun)
- Nous parlons. - We speak.
(Nous is a plural pronoun and parlont is a plural verb.)
- Ces femmes ont pris nos magazines. - Those women took our magazines.
(Ces is a plural demonstrative adjective, ont pris is a plural verb and nos is a plural possessive adjective. Femmes and magazines are plural nouns.)
- Tous mes rêves sont bons. - All my dreams are good.
(Tous, mes and bons are plural adjectives and sont is a plural verb. Rêves is a plural noun.)
