3) a sibilant 4) O
Some plurals are formed by a change of a vowel ie man >men
by adding -n/-en ie oxen.
singular as plural > neuter plurals sheep , deer.
foreign nouns ie single "radius" plural "radii"
double plurals ie brother > brethren brothers.
I realise this is not a full answer but it should help you search for more examples in these categories.
