What's the difference between the plural of "kous - kousen" and "neus-neuzen"?
Why the plural of 'kous' ended with 's' like in the 'kousen' and why 'neus' ended with 'z' like in the 'neuzen'? How to determine between using 's' or change the 's' becomes 'z'?
If a word ends with "ns" the s remains.
- kans (chance) --> kansen
In other circumstances the "s" usually changes into "z".
But "kous" seems to be an exception.
Dutch is a very irregular language unfortunately.
