Could it be that you're speaking Scottish English?
Only last week I read an article where it is said the
following (about Scottish English):

   That could be its source.  I just think it sounds pretty.  I was interested to note that Scottish English doesn't pluralize nouns with numbers; that seems like such a sensible thing.  I know that this is common in Celtic languages; would the Scots have picked it up from the Gaels, or is there a good English explanation for it?
