Some English words whose plural forms you may not know

The overfamiliarity with the fact that most English nouns either take "s", "es", "ies" or "ves" as plural markers oftentimes pose a lot of problems to most second learners of English as they ignorantly apply this standard rule to nouns that do not belong to this school of thought. A typical example is the word, criteriaCriteria is the plural form of criterion, but in this part of the world where English is being spoken and learnt as a second language, you often hear its users say "criterias". To this effect, this article provides the plural forms of some English words that do not form their plural forms with any of the aforementioned plural markers.
