"pluralistic" is of or pertaining to "pluralism". But, what is of or pertaining to "plurality"? I see the word "pluralitistic" used in blog posts. But, I'm not completely sure that automatically qualifies it as an English language word. I also see "equalitistic" used in blog posts for of or pertaining to "equality". But, I'm not sure that's really a word either. Is there a pertinent rule for forming adjectives from nouns ending in "ity"? We do have "authoritative" for "authority", and "qualitative" for "quality". But, I don't find "equalitative" for "equality". And, would that give us "pluralitative" for "plurality"? I see that in in blog posts, too... but still not finding it lexicographically.

The latin "qualitat-, qualitas" comparison to "pluralitat- pluralitas" argues for "pluralitative". But, I am grasping at straws, here.
