    Re: Countable Noun

    Most countable nouns have distinct forms for the plural. An important exception is the names of a few animals:
    one sheep, two sheep
    one moose, two moose
    Sometimes, a native speaker may feel comfortable using either form:
    one beaver, two beaver
    In some cases both forms are possible but one is more usual:
    one fish, two fish (but two fishes is not wrong).
    In most cases, though, the regular plural is needed:
    one cat, two cats.

    Hi Edward

    Does beaver always have the same form for both singular and plural? Or can I use beavers as a plural form as well?

    Thank you
