Category:English plurals ending in "-en"

This category contains English irregular plurals formed by changing a final “-an” to “-en”, or by adding a final “-en” or “-ren”.

These are formed either via umlaut, meaning “changing the vowel for inflection, notably man/men, or from Old English weak noun inflection, where the plural is formed via suffixing -an/-ena/-um, depending on case, as in ox/oxen, or child/children; see -en: Etymology 2.

The vast majority of these are some compound involving man/men, or (less commonly) woman/women or child/children. A few others include brethren and oxen.
