Plural is a category of the inflectional dimension number: plural nouns (or NPs) are defined as normally denoting more than one thing (or more than one entity). If the language also has a dual, plural nouns denote more than two things or entities.

Origin

From Latin (numerus) pluralis, derived from plus/plures ‘more, several’. The term apparently goes back to antiquity.
