Maltese Plural

Learning the Maltese Plural is very important because its structure is used in every day conversation. The more you practice the subject, the closer you get to mastering the Maltese language. But first we need to know what the role of Plural is in the structure of the grammar in Maltese.

Maltese Plurals are grammatical numbers, typically referring to more than one of the referent in the real world. In the English language, singular and plural are the only grammatical numbers. Here are some examples:
