Re: Marked irregular plurals taken down en masse?

I’ve noticed a few words which had irregular plurals specifically marked, eg THALAMI, KNEIDLACH, a few -um endings becoming -a in the plural, no longer have those plurals in. Have Oxford Dictionaries simply taken them down en masse? Have they taken them all down? Are they marked in the premium vers...

That was a much closer game than I imagine most of us were expecting.
