I have a question about the word "horn" meaning "beast."
Is "horn" both singular and plural like "uruuk" or "shara," or can it be pluralized by adding a "u" and becoming "hornu?"
In my opinion, it depends on context.
The rule is: Names for races, people and words which refer to people (like slave or warrior) are never pluralized.
So if you think about man or about other thinking being and call him or her "beast", you shouldn't pluralized it.
But if we talk about animals or thoughtless monsters, I think we can use pluralized noun "hornu" _________________ "Kranklûb krul kuluzut - Bûrz agh Matum.
