Strong Plurals?

From:Joseph Fatula <fatula3@...>

More or less accidentally, I derived a language from one of my conlangs that
has some interesting plural formations.  For example:

(sg.) - (pl.)
atsa - asto
chemu - chenda
daja - dazhda
egash - egzhu
elghi - elghbo
kaigu - kaigu
kaza - kazda
kodu - kodra
ngide - ngidra
omeiyh - onggha
qrat - qrada
qule - qulga
tachi - tashta
temu - tendo
tume - tungga

How would one best describe this sort of plural formation without reference
to the older form of the language?  (In this scenario, the people who speak
Tunggu (this language) do not know anything specific about the language of
their ancestors.)
