[SalesForce] How to get plural label of a standard object inside salesforce lightning component

In visualforce page we could access plural labels by writing {!$ObjectType.Opportunity.labelPlural} but in lightning it does not seem to support that. Am I doing something wrong?

Unfortunately $ObjectType isn't available in Lightning. You can find Lightning Global Value Providers here.

For your use case, you will need to call a server-side Apex Method which will use getLabelPlural() from DescribeSObjectResult Class to get you what you need.
