Plural Forms There are a number of ways to make a noun plural in German. eg. Hunde = dogs Katzen = cats Kaninchen = rabbit/s Küchen = cakes (Kuchen = cake) Bücher = books (Buch = book) Kartoffeln = potatoes (Kartoffel = potato)
There are a few guidelines to forming the plural in German. 1)Most German nouns with one syllable will add –e to form the plural. eg. Hunde 2) Nouns which add –n or –en to form the plural are usually feminine. eg. Katzen 3) Nouns with the endings -chen, -lein, -el, -en or –er usually dont change their endings in the plural, although there may be some umlaut changes. eg. Kaninchen, Vögel
You can find the plural of any noun by looking up a German dictionary and finding the German word. The ending and/or umlaut change is shown by the second thing in the brackets, after the comma. eg. Hund (-(e)s, -e) m dog eg. Katze (-, -n) f cat eg. Kaninchen (-s, - ) nt rabbit eg. Vogel (-s, Vögel) m bird
