    Nominative plural of neuter nouns

    I have read in a grammar book that neuter nouns ending in -же, -ше, -ще, -че, -це in the singular take the ending -а in the plural. Anyone could write some examples? What about with neuter nouns ending in -ге, -ке, -хе (if exists)? Some examples please?

    Thanks and sorry for bad english.

    Examples:
    убежище --> убежища
    стрельбище --> стрельбища
    полотенце --> полотенца
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.

    There's no Russian words ending with -ге, -ке, -хе. Only some loan words which don't follow the rule, as a rule.

    капище - капища
    чудище - чудища
    коленце - коленца

    That's what i can think of now.

    Ah, and this one: у**ище - у**ища. Alright, forget this word. It's obscene, and just a bad example propping the rule of your textbook.

    Words ending with -ге, -ке, -хе could only be loanwords (караоке/караокэ). These types of words will not change, even some words with normal ending like какао, пальто, кофе, плато stay unchanged.

    I don't think that you have to move stresses here.
