Generally spoken, the singular describes that a thing or being is there only once (e.g. "a shoe"). The opposite form is called plural (e.g. "shoes").

In Klingon, the absense of a plural suffix does not always mean that the noun is singular: first, there are situations where those suffixes are not added (see MOVED TO... clipped Klingon), and second, there are word which are inherently plural, like the word cha, which means torpedoes, while peng in this case is used for a single torpedo.
