Plural formation in Hausa is rather complex and is not easy predictable from the singular form. In fact, tonal pattern and vocalic length are very different in some occurrences. This study examines a limited lexical corpus (53 French loanwords), with examples of two kinds of plural formation: suffix plural and suffix plus root modification.
