MOUSE PLURAL: meaning and examples

Good morning.

A few days ago we received the following question from Maite

Hello Matthew,
Could you please resolve a doubt for me? Talking about computers, is the plural of "mouse" "mice", or is "mouses" accepted too? Thank you very much for your answer and for your Daily Vitamins.

This is an interesting question Maite.

As you know, the plural of mouse is irregular.

Example 1:
There was a mouse in the house.
There were two mice in the house.

However, when referring to a computer mouse, the plural is regular.

Example 2:
He has two computer mouses, but neither of them work, so he uses the touchpad. 

Other English nouns with irregular plural forms are child-children, woman-women and foot-feet.

If you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin, please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website (

I hope you have a nice day.
