A numeral is a word, functioning most typically as a determiner, adjective or pronoun, that expresses a number and a relation to the number, such as quantity, sequence, frequency or fraction.
Note that cardinal numerals are covered by
NUM whether they are used
as determiners or not (as in Windows Seven) and whether they
are expressed as words (four), digits (4) or Roman numerals
(IV). Other words functioning as determiners (including quantifiers
such as many and few) are tagged DET.
Note that there are words that may be traditionally called numerals in
some languages (e.g. Czech) but which are not tagged
non-cardinal numerals belong to other parts of speech in our universal
tagging scheme, based mainly on syntactic criteria: ordinal numerals
are adjectives (first, second, third) or adverbs ([cs]
poprvé “for the first time”), multiplicative numerals are adverbs
(once, twice) etc.
