Romanian Plural

Learning the Romanian Plural displayed below is vital to the language. Romanian 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.

Grammar Tips:

While in English, the plural is formed by adding (s) to the singular. Generally, in Romanian, masculine nouns and adjectives end in (i) and feminine ones end in (e). The third gender in Romanian, called “neuter” is used mostly for objects or concepts, and has a masculine form in the singular and a feminine form in the plural. Here are some examples:

Masculine: Un  prieten (a friend) becomes Niște prieteni (some friends)

Feminine: O fată (one girl) becomes Niște fete (some girls)

Neuter: Un scaun (one chair) becomes Niște scaune (some chairs)

Other rules for the plural forms:

-       The masculine nouns ending in (-st), turn (s) into (ș) and then add (i). For example:

Un economist (one economist) becomes Niște economiști (some economists)

-       The masculine nouns ending in (-t), turn (t) into (ț) and then add (i). For example:

Un student (one student) becomes Niște studenți (some students)

-       The masculine nouns ending in (-d), turn (d) into (z) and then add (i). For example:

Un nomad (one nomad) becomes Niște nomazi (some nomads)


Here are some examples:
