Ich lerne Deutsch. Das Lehrbuch, das ich benutze, verwendet den Satz:

Kleinere Städt lohnen einen Besuch.

Ist Städt der richtige Plural von Stadt?

(„Die Städte lohnen sich einen Besuch” ist dafür besser, oder?) – diN0bot Dec 19 '11 at 1:24
@DiN0bot, No, that would be wrong (or at least very poor style). – fzwo Dec 19 '11 at 7:45
Ich schließe diese Frage, da sie anscheinend auf einem Tippfehler basiert. – Wrzlprmft Jun 19 at 7:30

Bis auf wenige Verwendungen innerhalb verschiedener Mundarten ist "Städte" der korrekte Plural. "Städt" scheint also ein Fehler im Buch zu sein.

Danke für die Antwort. – danatel Dec 19 '11 at 9:41

„Stadt“ in, Deutsche Wörterbücher und Grammatik

It'd be better to add a summary of the link to your answer. – user508 Dec 19 '11 at 1:06
What does this answer add that the first one didn't already answer with respect to the question? – fzwo Dec 19 '11 at 7:46

The plural of Stadt is Städte. Never ever read or heart Städt before.
