Are these the right plural addings for these languages?
Dutch-e, en, ens

Danish has -e, -r, or -er plural addings. I can only think of a single word where the plural form is done with an -s ending: en høne, flere høns. There are probably more, but they are not common.
In general, a word that doesn't end with an -e or an -r, will be given an -e ending:
- en hund, flere hunde
- en stol, flere stole
A word that ends with an -e will be given an -r ending:
- en hare, flere harer
- et øre, flere ører
A word that ends with an -r will be given an -e ending:
- en lærer, flere lærere
Newer words of a foreign origin will be given an -er ending:
- en chauffør, flere chauffører
- en ingeniør, flere ingeniører
And then there are the exceptions, words that do not change in plural form:
- et slips, flere slip
- en is, flere is
...and words where the plural form is indicated by a vowel change
- en mand, flere mænd
- en gås, flere gæsSource(s): I am Danish.

I think she meant how do you make a noun plural in these languages..
I can tell you for the ones I know:
Plural endings in Italian = -i for words that end in -o (masculine) --> 'gatto' becomes 'gatti' (cats)
-e for words that end in -a (feminine) --> 'donna' becomes 'donne' (women)
-i for words that end in -e --> 'cane' becomes 'cani' (dogs)
Plural endings in German = there's more variation and they don't always follow precise rules..
possible plural endings are: -e, -en, -er, -n
(it also gets more complicated because German has cases like in Latin)
Plurals endings in Spanish = -s (easy enough)Source(s): Native Italian speaker, studied both Spanish and German
