Re: Håller -s på att bli en regelbunden pluralform i svenska

Ja; (evOT→) cookie kan vi ju gott slippa låna in, och söta kex får gärna för mig heta (små-)kaka, men hellre kex än ‘(potentiellt) lättsaltad småkaka’. Nån måtta vid ostbrickan tack. ;P

Well, there go my searching skills … (and my general knowledge of Turkic languages) :roll:

Visserligen, men jag skulle vilja hävda att det finns vissa skillnader mellan kakor och kex, vad gäller … konsistens, inte minst.

Kex:
alt. 1) sg. kek, pl. kex

Keps:
alt. 1) sg. kep, pl. keps
alt. 2) sg. kepa, pl. kepor (någorlunda vedertaget, ju)

Yeah, it's my favourite among the World's airports (not that I've been to that many really) …
I really liked the airfoil roof with mobiles, and the eternally long boarding concourse … But now I'm starting to sound like an airport geek, which I hope I won't become anytime soon.

So what's with the <ç> in the thread subject? I don't see it in your orthography or phoneme inventory. Could it perhaps be an exonym of some sort?
