There are two ways to express the associative plural, depending on whether the person or thing with which the others are associated is included or excluded.

If included, the form 'ar geiot' is used after the name of the person or thing being associated with. 'Ar seiot' is used for objects. Examples:

Sím langofig Maríe ar geiot - Maríe and her lot are boring.

Cé dyscasyrthog ar seiot né polío - S/he can't operate things like computers.

If the associate is excluded, 'geiot go' or 'seiot go' are used in front. Example:

Sím muireg geiot go b-Pafel, mair mereð-séilig rychtío - Pafel's associates are gloomy, but he remains cheery.

strangely, while Nevotak has no nominal plural, it has a dedicated associative plural word "ris"

however, having no nominal plural but associative plural is not impossible, Cantonese of our world also shows this pattern(as listed in WALS).
