Plurality and Case

The case markers given below can be added to nouns marked for plural, in which case the final retroflex lateral l shows up. Nouns with final morphophonemic changes (sec. ??) do not exhibit these changes before the plural, but nouns ending in ǣ am change this to ang before plural.In ST this is not as serious in transliteration as it is in Tamil script, i.e. in script we must have rather than *, but in transliteration we will just have maranga `trees', phonetically [m '025 r '025 '070 ga].
