Summary/Abstract: One of the most difficult problems of teaching Hungarian as foreign language is the explanation regarding the pluriform nouns and verbs roots. My paper deals with the classification of the pluriform noun roots, and I will present the different groups of nouns based on the database realized by the digitized material of the seven volumes of A magyar nyelv értelmező szótára (1959–1962) [The Explanatory Dictionary of the Hungarian Language (1959–1962)]. In Hungarian linguistics, this work is known as Debreceni Thesaurus (DT). In the conclusions, I will present the possible solutions for this problem.
