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

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

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
fzwo: A source for answering pluralization questions like this in the future. Sorry-- adding comments is a new thing for me which only recently became available (points?). – diN0bot Dec 21 '11 at 5:49

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