    It is not subject to logic

    карандаш - карандашИ
    дом - домА
    стол- столЫ
    НО : человек - люди

    более чем один ДОМ ( карандаш, стол, человек )

    In Russian, in the nominative case, you make a plural by using the letters "и", "ы", "я" or "а".
    For masculine nouns:
    If the word ends in a consonant, add “ы”.
    Replace “й” with “и”
    Replace “ь” with “и”

    For feminine nouns:
    Replace “я” with “и”
    Replace “ь” with “и”
    Replace “а” with “ы” (unless previous consonant is Г, К, Х, Ж, Ч, Ш, Щ then replace with "и" as per the spelling rules.)

    For neuter nouns:
    Replace “о” with “а”
    Replace “е” with “я” (don't forget the spelling rules)

    Some examples:
    студент (student) - студенты (students)
    газета (newspaper) - газеты (newspapers)
    здание (building) - здания (buildings)
