ـُونَ (-ūnam

  1. Nominative-case (marfūʿ) suffix used to pluralize masculine nouns and adjectives referring to people. In Classical Arabic, with full ʾiʿrāb, appears as ـُونَ (-ūna). Note that most masculine nouns and adjectives referring to people, especially shorter ones, are not pluralized in this fashion, but use a broken plural instead. Furthermore, non-human masculine nouns don't use this suffix, either forming a broken plural or using the "feminine" suffix ـَات (-āt).
  2. Nominative-case (marfūʿ) suffix used very occasionally to pluralize non-human nouns, including some that are feminine, such as سَنَة (sana, year), plural سِنُون (sinūn).
  3. -ty
