Notes[edit]

  • The default plural is known to be incorrectly generated as follows:-
    • If the noun ends in -io and is accented on that syllable then the plural ending should be -ii (-i is generated).
    • If the noun starts with capo- and has a plural that starts with capi-, then a plural starting with capo- is generated.
