Germanech has singular (unmarked) and plural (marked with -s,
or -es if the word ends in a sibilant).
Old Albic has singular, plural and vestiges of a dual, which is
only used when referring to a matched pair. Inanimate nouns
receive the suffixes -im for plural and -um for dual.
Animate nouns form the plural by changing the stem-final vowel
to -i and the dual by changing the stem-final vowel to -u.
(Animate nouns always end in vowels, which in the singular
indicate gender: masculine -o, feminine -e, epicene -a.)
