It would be wugud. Unless, it is in the construct state, in which case it is wugom.

I was expecting it for English, but that works too. That's what a wug is.

Then even its non-existence was not, nor its existence,
There was no Wug then, nor the Wugs beyond it.
What covered it? Where was it? In whose keeping?
Was there then linguistic water, in depths unfathomed?

Then it was neither dead nor alive
It did not have no features nor did it have features.
The One talked meaninglessly and self-sustaining.
There was that One then, and there was no other.

At first there were only questions wrapped in questions.
All this was only unillumined water.
That One which had came to be, enclosed in nothing,
arose at last, born of the power of psycholinguistics.

In the beginning morphology descended on it -
that was the primal seed, born of the mind.
The children who had searched their hearts with wisdom
know that which is kin to that which is not.

But, after all, who knows, and who can say
Whence it all came, and how its creation happened?
the experiments themselves are later than creation,
so who knows truly whence it has arisen?

Whence its creation had its origin,
she, whether she fashioned it or whether she did not,
she, who surveys it all from highest heaven,
she knows - or maybe even she does not know.

To answer your question less... ummm, quizzically?

A wug is a made up "English" word that was used by a linguist (I forget the name) in a paper that was done to indicate that even when someone is unfamiliar with a word, one can and will still apply certain paradigms to make it plural, or past tense (if it's a made up verb), etc.

More specifically, the test shows that young children are capable of forming morphological derivations such as the plural before they're taught how by their parents or in school.

And more broadly, it's one of the first examples of practical experimental linguistics.

This was what the original test looked, if you're wondering (spoilered because it's really big):

There were other parts of the test, some involving more plural formation, and some involving other kinds of morphological derivation, but this one is by far the most well-known.
