BTW What's the difference between "broer" and "broeder". Are they both in common use with the same meaning? (And what's the plural of "broer"? I think that's "broeren" but I'm not sure.) There are also some plurals in "-eren": kind -> kinderen (child -> children) blad -> bladeren (leaf) but blad -> bladen (sheet) And IIRC the names of many jobs ending in "-man" make their plurals in "-lui". E.g. zeeman -> zeelui (seaman, sailor).
