љу̑ди m pl (Latin spelling ljȗdi); singular: čȍvjek / čȍvek)

  1. people, men
    Два човјека су ишла цестом.
    Two men walked down the street.
    Пет људи је ишло цестом.

Usage notes[edit]

This plural form takes suppletive stem in the singular, as can be seen in the declension table. Old dual forms have been preserved in the counting for 2, 3, 4 (also in 11, 12, 13, 14 etc.) which bind plural form of чо̏вјек / чо̏век.
