Welcome to the fourth Pashto lesson about the plural. This time we will learn about the singular form and what it looks like in the plural, followed by grammar rules, finally a list of emergency phrases.
The plural is the form which refers to more than one object or person. For example: I speak two languages the plural here is [languages] because it refers to more than one [language]. The examples below use plurals in different ways and places to demonstrate how they look wehn converted from their singular form.
|Grammar + Rules - Pashto|
|I speak one language|
[singular form] زه په یوه ژبه خبرې کوم
|we speak three languages|
[plural noun] مونږ په درې ژبو خبرې کوو
|he visits many countries|
[adverb + plural noun] هغه ډېرو هېوادونو ته سفرونه کوي
|they are happy now|
[plural pronoun] هغوي اوس خوښ دي
|she has five red shoes|
[adjective + plural noun] هغه پنځه دانې سره بوټان لري

[preposition + plural noun] زه له پیازو پرته سندویچ غواړم
The following is a list of examples showing both the singular and plural form. This demonstrates how the plural is used with humans, objects and animals.
Now it's time to practice your Pashto by looking at these phrases which are related to emergencies. Be prepared when traveling abroad, just in case you need help or by offering help to someone else. I recommend writing these expressions down on a notebook before traveling.
