In Polish one never forms plural with -s (or at least in 99,9% of cases). Most of the time we add or change vowel at the end.
There are even some eculiar examples of loanwords:
- jankes (jokingly or derogatory for an American), plural: jankesi (or jankesy which is a depreciative form) comes from Yankees (plural itself, singular Yankee)
- keks (plural: keksy) comes from cakes
- nuggets/nugets (plural: nuggetsy/nugetsy)
- baks (colloq. American Dollar) , plural: baksy, comes from: buck
- cornflakes/kornflejks, plural: cornlakesy/kornflejksy
