I am sorry, my English is not so good and I ve tried to explain my problem as best I could. What I really wanted to know is how to pluralize nouns in Spanish, and Redimida explained it very clearly.
Thanks anyway!!!

In Spanish as well as English a good dictionary should show how to pluralize any noun that is an exception to the rules. So it is necessary to learn those rules. Fortunately they are pretty easy.
? words ending in a vowel; add an s.
? hijo > hijos
? mesa > mesas
? words ending in consonants; add es.
? animal > animales
? mujer > mujeres
? In words already ending in s; nothing is added, only the article changes
? la crisis > las crisis
? For words ending with s but having only one syllable; add es.
? mes > meses

If it's any consolation, Lazarus, I don't understand what he means, either. All dictionaries, in both English and Spanish, work the same way: you look up the base form of a word (singular, unconjugated, etc.), and find the meaning of that base word.

Miran, what exactly is it that you want'

Full meaning of words? For that, what you need is a good 3000+ pages dictionary.

Are you asking for a list of words in singular and plural? I still don't understand. Most plurals are done by adding an -s to the singular form, and there are a few rules for certain types of words as well. Is this what you want?

Casa casas
perro perros
roca rocas

I don't see the point in getting a list for this, if it is what you are asking for.

It means that every time when I try to find a word in this dictionary I only find singular.
