How do I recognize whether a given word is Singular noun/verb vs Plural noun/verb. I know this may be very trivial for many. But I don't know how to recognize.

Many nouns take 's' at the end to form plural noun. However does the verb take it too ??

For eg.

decline - ?? noun or verb ? singular/plural

ensure or ensures -- verb or noun ??

Guru's pls help.

For the plural form of most nouns, add s.

For nouns that end in ch, x, s, or s sounds, add es.

box – boxes
watch – watches
moss – mosses
bus – buses
For nouns ending in f or fe, change f to v and add es.

wolf – wolves
wife – wives
leaf – leaves
life – lives
Some nouns have different plural forms.

Nouns ending in vowels like y or o do not have definite rules.

A few nouns have the same singular and plural forms.
