Plural marker 'những'

Short explanation:

'những' is used to indicate the plural form of a noun.


Using the plural marker 'những' is straightforward. It is simply placed right before the noun.

Long explanation:

In Vietnamese, the word 'những' is often used as a plural marker ahead of a noun. It denotes that there is more than one of that noun, functioning similarly to the English 'the' or 'some' before plural nouns. It is important to note that 'những' is used regardless of whether the noun that follows is countable or uncountable.
