    Welcome to the forum.

    What does your dictionary tell you?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Welcome to the forum, endesised.

    Everybody should bookmark the OneLook free online dictionary search website. (Click here.)

    Many of the dictionaries listed there tell you the plural form of nouns.

    "Fox" is also the plural of "fox", at least in AmE. It is like "sheep" and "deer" and others.
