PLURAL OF WORDS ENDING WITH “-OU”

In general, the plural of words ending with -ou is very simple: you just add an -s.Bisous

Example: un bisou – des bisous (a kiss – kisses)

BUT… of course there’s a but, otherwise you wouldn’t be learning French!

There are a few exceptions.

BUT (again, yes!)… lucky you, there is a simple sentence you can memorize and that includes all the -ou words which take an -x in the plural form, instead of the usual -s (they’re a bunch of originals, yes… what can we do…)

Here’s the sentence:

“Mon chou, bijou, viens sur mes genoux, laisse tes joujoux, prends ces cailloux et jette-les sur ce hibou plein de poux.”
(My darling, jewel, come on my lap, leave your toys, take those stones and throw them on that owl full of lice.)
Not the most peaceful request coming from a mother, but it does the trick! Memorize it and you’ll know the 7 words ending with “-OU” that have an “-X” in the plural form.
