-uri

I’m fascinated by the suffix -uri.

Well, I don’t know if it’s a suffix in Romanian or not, but it seems that way to English-speaking me. -Uri is magic. You can put it on the end of an English and it becomes Romanian. Obviously, I’m (mostly) joking. But it seems like everytime I turn around, I see a new -uri word, usually Romanglish, and I absolutely love it. So, how do you use -uri?

Down the -uri rabbit hole…

Example:

Chips

Chipsuri

 

See? Magic!

Although, I don’t think it’s really that easy. I am still learning Romanian, so I obviously don’t have all the details, but I’m guessing that chips = singular and chipsuri = plural.

If this is the case, I’m excited. A double plural. Exponential chips.

Other examples? Or not, you decide.
