Dropping the Plural Suffix: With Verbs of Habit

كۆپلۈك قوشۇمچىسىنىڭ چۈشۈپ قالغىنى: ئادەت بىلدۈرىدىغان پېئىللار بىلەن ئىشلەتكەندە

In noun-verb phrases that express general habits or preferences, such as "I like cats" or "I don't eat walnuts", the noun does not appear in plural the way that it does in English (for countable nouns).

I don't like apples.
.مەن ئالمىنى ياخشى كۆرمەيمەن
