The plural in Welsh
Hello, how can I make plural in Welsh? Is there something by what I can identify how to make plural, or I have to simply learn from every word its plural?
There are perhaps 30-40 different ways in which plurals are made in Welsh, depending on how you count them. Although you will find some patterns emerging as you learn them, there are nearly always some exceptions.
It is probably best to learn the plurals as you learn the nouns themselves, along with their gender. Any Welsh dictionary will show the plural and gender of nouns.
The most common plural endings are "-au" and "-on". (although there are many plural endings).
I was once told that -au/-iau is the most common plural ending, with about ?20% of nouns taking one of those as their plural.
