|Subject:||Morphemes for plurals|
Are there any languages whose standard method of showing plurality
separates the morpheme or phrase that indicates it from the root word
it refers to?
As you may well realize, by no means all languages make a singular/plural distinction in their grammars. But, where a language does pluralize things, I don't personally know of a case which has anything in between the indicator of plurality and the noun stem.
