comment Are there any nouns with irregular plurals in Spanish?
The bit about z->ces is actually a general rule (not specific to plurals), "z" always changes to "c" before "e" and "i". Eg: "caza" -> "cacería". "paz" -> "pacífico".

comment Difference between “el comer” and “comer” when used as noun
@Gorpik : Yes, in "me gusta el buen comer", 'comer' is a real noun, not a verb that acts synctatically as a noun (as in "me gusta comer", or "me gusta comer bien"), the comment at the end of my answer applies.

comment Subject - Verb Agreement: Repitiendo…, y determinando, ilustra
As it stands the expression is incorrect and even difficult to understand. Could you post the original?

comment “Rento departamento”: does it mean “Pago” or “cobro por vivir ahí” ? or both?
+1 Hay que decir que este caso de polisemia (verbos que invierten la dirección sujeto-objeto) es bastante rara.

comment Why is “agua” masculine in singular form and feminine in plural? “El agua” / “Las aguas”
I want to stress: those feminine nouns are NOT converted to masculine; the rule is to use the masculine article, but the noun is still feminine (see Flimzy's answer).
