Consonant Shifts

I previously showed that some consonants change in some verb tenses. The same rule is true when making a singular word plural and vice versa.

The z and s interchange, and v and f interchange.

For example: huis (house) becomes huizen (houses), and wolf (wolf) becomes wolven (wolves).
