Plural number is marked by the prefix _3-_, whilst nullar number is marked by the prefix _my'-_. The Tamahi equivalents are _h3-_ and _mi'_, respectively. Some examples: Ebisedian Tamahi Singular biz3tai' [biz@\ta"?i] bistai' [bIs"taj] Plural 3biz3tai' [?@\biz@\ta"?i] h3bistai' [h@\bIs"taj] Nullar my'biz3tai ["mybiz@\ta?i] mi'bistai ["mibIstaj] Singular ky'ri ["kyr`i] ki'ri ["kir`I] Plural 3kyroi' [?@\kyr`o"?i] h3kiroi' [h@\ki"roI] Nullar my'kyri ["mykir`i] mi'kiri ["mikIr`I] Singular jhiti' [Zi"ti] ti' ["ti] Plural 3jhiti' [?@\Zi"ti] h3sti' [h@\s"ti] Nullar my'jhiti ["myZiti] mi'sti ["mistI] Don't know about natlangs, though. :-) T -- MASM = Mana Ada Sistem, Man!
