EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Slavic *ľudьje (people, men), from Proto-Indo-European *h₁lewdʰ-.

NounEdit

љу̑ди m (Latin spelling ljȗdi) (singular: чо̏вјек / чо̏век)

  1. people, men
    Два човјека су ишла цестом — Two men walked down the street.
    Пет људи је ишло цестом. — Five people walked down the street.

Usage notesEdit

This plural form takes suppletive stem in the singular, as can be seen in the declension table. Old dual forms have been preserved in the counting for 2, 3, 4 (also in 11, 12, 13, 14 etc.) which bind plural form of чо̏вјек / чо̏век.
