Plural: -i or -s? - Plural: -i or -s?

Dublin/Europú. Europún is based on Iorpún and other European languages such as German, English, French, Spanish, Latin, Italian and Nordic branches. For its Iorpún roots one would be tempted to use the suffix "-i" to describe the plural, i.e. flor - flower: na flor - ni flori. As the suffix "-s" is very popular among European languages but creates a slight misunderstanding in the English language (together with the Genetive) it would be best to think about the following solutions/soluzoni:

Plural: -s
=> flor - flower: Na flor - Ni flors
=> hus - house: Na hus - Ni hus
=> paradú - paradies: Na paradú - Ni paradús

Plural: -i
=> flor - flower: Na flor - Ni flori
=> hus - house: Na hus - Ni husi
=> paradú - paradies: Na paradú - Ni paradúi

Combined Plural: -s, -i et -si
=> flor - flower: Na flor - Ni flors or ni flori
=> hus - house: Na hus - Ni husi
=> paradú - paradies: Na paradú - Ni paradúsi

Genetive:
Na fem et na man d'husoq - The woman and the man of the house
Ni fems (or ni femi) et mans (or mani) d'husiq - The women and men of the houses

=> To achieve the most clarity within Europún one should incline to use the suffix "-i" or "-si" for the plural rather than the suffix "-s" to avoid misunderstanding with the Genetive plural "d' -iq"

Dikzonar:
Flor - Flower
Hus - House
Paradú - Paradies
Fem - Woman
Man - Man
