Note info on p. 113 re: the plural endings for -chen, -heit etc.
Incidentally, note that the endings -chen (==> neuter) and -heit, -keit, tät, and -ung (==> feminine) also determine the gender of those nouns. You can find more such information in the optional homework reading assigned für Stunde 26: “Some Hints on How to Guess Gender.”
Reminder: vocabulary in strikethrough font on the CEM docs will not be tested! [e.g. MUCH of the “Die Stadt” vocabulary]. The Quizlet decks reflect this: they include only the test vocab, and a few “highly recommended” items clearly marked as “NICHT AUF DEM TEST.”
