Making Plural of Masc. Nouns and Pos. Pronouns.
- my, plural (masc/fem/neu) No change in any gender. Ever. Any of these. All the same. Nice'n'easy
- his (no change from singular)
- her (likewise)
- its (likewise)
ші- your (pl.)
Notice the vowel change in мої,твої
These are more complicated, but still not as hard as most other things in the Ukrainian language
In masc. nouns, which end in a consonant, except for ш, щ, ч and ь
, the most common way to make plural is to add -и to the noun. For example: робітни
, workers. In many, it'll lead to the change of the vowel in the root, eg кіт, cat
If the noun ends in -ок, like шино
к- a traditional Ukrainian tavern, дзвіно
к- call/ring, the "o" is dropped. So it becomes шинки, дзвінки. The stress now is on the last syllable.
If the noun ends in ш, щ, ч or ь, you add not -и, but -i. Example: вчи
Nouns of Ukrianian origin, which end in -р, also get -i. Example, друка
р, printer (a person!)
р, a traditional Ukrainian bard
Masc. nouns which end in -a, get -и, eg соба
ки. There's no change in the stress.
