|Lesson 4: Plurals|
In this lesson, you will learn the general rules of pluralization. Since these lessons are geared towards a grammatical structure, there is no basic nouns vocabulary section. Well, not yet anyways. However, word translations will be provided in the hopes that you will learn these words in the best way possible - by seeing them in action.
You will see nouns and adjectives grouped into these categories. As you see more and more words, you will pick up on certain patterns.
MasculineThe plural for a masculine noun is made mostly by adding -i to the end of the word.
In some cases this will cause the final consonant to change.
And words that end in a vowel have that vowel replaced by -i.
Feminine nouns are a little more diverse in their forms.
Those ending in -ă form the plural by substituting an -e or an -i.
Those ending in -e, replace it with an -i:
Those ending in -ură, replace it with -uri :
Those ending in -ie, replace it with -ii :
Those ending in -ea, replace it with -ele :
Neuter nouns have two forms in the plural.
Those ending in -ou , form the plural by adding -uri :
Those ending in -iu , replace with -ii :
