Tigrinya plurals have different forms for numbers. The analysis of Tigrinya nominals in terms of grammatical category for number, singular and plural, recognizes the division of plural forms into sound (suffixing) and broken plurals. This paper divides, classifies, systematizes, and demonstrates how one form is derived from another with the aim of assisting the reader to understand the seemingly complex and problematic plural forms of Tigrinya.
