Is it just me, or is every word except "oxen" (and the non-word "boxen") is simply a man/men derivative? 04:10, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Wow, someone really pooched this category; "-men" is a separate suffix from "-en", so most of the current entries should not be here. --Connel MacKenzie 04:19, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
I agree that -man to -men suffix conversions don't seem to be "irregular," but since they aren't direct additions of "s" or "es" I suppose it is useful to have them broken out. --Connel MacKenzie 04:54, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
Per the above, I'm moving all of them into a Category:English plurals ending in "-en". Cheers! bd2412 T 15:12, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
