MO-plurals


The general pattern for forming plurals of Sesotho MO-words is as follows:

MO-word ---------- BA-word
Motho:   ---------- Batho
Moshanyana:   ---------- Bashanyana



Can you think of other Sesotho MO-words? Do they all follow the pattern we've just described? There are, indeed MO-words that DO NOT follow our pattern. Can you find them? Morena is one such MO-word.
