Unit 8: Plurals and genitives

Nouns in the database are presented in their nominative singular form. Exceptions include nouns that are used only in their plural form or nouns that make sense only in the plural form, for example clothes, parallel lines, éadaí, línte comhthreomhara. Inflected forms are given with single word terms, such as the plural forms or genitive case of nouns. They are intended to help with the correct use of terminology as part of text and they are given generally with the Irish version of terms, not with English terms.
