We investigate bifurcations of nonlinear modes in parity-time (PT-) symmetric discrete systems. We consider a general class of nonlinearities allowing for existence of the nonlinear modes and address situations when the underlying linear problem is characterized by the presence of degenerate eigenvalues or exceptional-point singularity. In each of the cases we construct formal expansions for small-amplitude nonlinear modes. We also report a class of nonlinearities allowing for a system to admit one or several integrals of motion, which turn out to be determined by the pseudo-Hermiticity of the nonlinearity.
