    Problem

    Please explain whether the plural nouns can be formed from words such as 'dirties' from dirty;'naughties' from naughty;'directees' from direct,etc.

    Regards!

    Dirty, naughty, direct are adjectives.

    People do coin words in this way, but they do not in general become accepted.
