Esperanto[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The Greek nominative-plural inflection -i of the first and second declensions (parallel to the accusative suffix -n); perhaps also the Latin nominative-plural inflection -e of the first declension. (Both Greek -i and Latin -e are thought to have been pronounced IPA(key): [i̯], as is Esperanto -j.)

Suffix[edit]

-j

  1. -s. (Marks the plural form of nouns, adjectives, and some pronouns, e.g. juna patro a young father, junaj patroj young fathers.)

Hungarian[edit]
