Their Name Are Juan and Rosa: Understanding and Responding to Noun Number Errors in ESL Writing.
Miller, Linda Joy
TESOL Journal, v6 n2 p20-23 Win 1996

Noun number errors, or the incorrect use of the plural "-s," are used to illustrate that errors result from two different noun number conceptions: the optional, free-floating -s and the ever present, two-member noun number system.
