Usage notes[edit]

  • The normal plural in writing is Jungen, although the colloquial Jungs is also sometimes seen. In speech, Jungs is more common, particularly in northern and central Germany.
  • The third plural Jungens is not all too frequent and chiefly restricted to northern and (parts of) central Germany.
  • Even with the irregular plurals (Jungs, Jungens) the singular declension is always weak (thus with -n in the oblique cases).
