  1. Changing from masculine singular to masculine plural when the noun ends in - आ
    • change ा to ो
    • -लड़का = boy----> लड़के = boys
    • -बेटा = son---> बेटे = sons
    • -कमरा = room---> कमरे = rooms
  2. Changing from masculine singular to masculine plural when the noun does NOT end in - आ
    NO CHANGE
  3. If it is a feminine noun ending in ई
    • Replace the ई with इयाँ
    • -लड़की – girl---> लड़कियाँ – girls
    • -बेटी – daughter---> बेटियाँ – daughters
  4. If it is a feminine noun not ending in ई
    • Then add एँ
    • -माता – mother---> माताएँ – mothers
    • -भाषा – language---> भाषाएँ – languages
    • -मेज़ – table---> मेज़ें – tables
  5. Adjective Agreement
    -ending in आ
    -not ending in आ
    • Ending in आ- ending changes to agree with gender and number of the noun it describes
    • -अच्छा लड़का – good boy/ अच्छे लड़के – good boys
    • -अच्छी लड़की – good girl/ अच्छी लड़कियाँ – good girls

    Not ending in आ- nothing changes
