Question regarding nominatives: magister and magistra

(I) Regarding the genitive singular (masculine) word: <<magistri>>

Question: Is the genitive plural (masculine) spelled as <<magistrorum>> correct?


(II) Regarding the genitive singular (feminine) word: <<magistrae>>

Question: Is the genitive plural (feminine) spelled as <<magistrarum>> correct?

I think I am ninety-nine percent sure for both. I hope it's not magistorum and magistarum.

If you can, pick up a copy of "501 Latin Verbs" by Richard Prior. It fully conjugates hundreds of verbs (501 in fact ;) and has been indispensible to me for answering questions like this one. :)

So, do the 501 Latin verbs include nouns?
