I'm working on an app where it would be great to have a list of every single plural noun in a txt. Does this exist somewhere?

There is a sql database on sourceforge. It has about 170,000 English words. If you are building an app then you should be comfortable with importing the database and loading all words that have type pl and saving them to a text file. Hope it helps.

    What is it based on, or sourced from? – Kris Jun 11 '18 at 7:00

    It doesn't help to mix the huge set of +s nouns when all you need is only the irregular plurals. – Kris Jun 11 '18 at 7:02
  • This was extrated from The Online Plain Text English Dictionary. You're right, most nouns can be pluralized trivially which OP may want to consider. Any plurals that are mentioned explicitly appear to be irregular – Ben Kushigian Jun 11 '18 at 17:09
