    As you know in every language there are lots of exceptions, but generally speaking we can say that most of the words end in -0 (masculine singular) or -A (femminine singular).

    In most of the words that are femminine you form the plural by adding - E

    e.g. cura(a girl) - curE(girls)

    kava (a coffee) - kavE (coffees)

    lopta(a ball) - loptE (balls)

    With masculine nouns you add -I

    dečko (a guy) - dečkI (guys)

    televisor ( a Tv) - televizorI (TVs)

    As I said before there are many exceptions, so you have

    pas(a dog) - psi (dogs); stol (a table)- stolovi (tables) etc.

    Although I'm native, I honestly don't have a clue. An American guy was once explaining me that it has something to do with syllables but I didn't understand anything. Totally weird. I speak 4 foreign languages but I don't have a clue about morphology of my own language. It's quite complicated though.

    This language has a complicated grammar, and it has all sorts of ways of pluralizing nouns and verbs.
