Number: number

Number is an inflectional feature of nouns, adjectives, verbs. In the tagset it is encoded as: singular (s), plural (p), count (c), pluralia tantum (l). Singularia tantum is not encoded.

Sing: singular number

A singular noun denotes one person, animal or thing.

Examples: [bg] молив / moliv (pencil)

Plur: plural number

A plural noun denotes several persons, animals or things.

Examples: [bg] моливи / molivi (pencils)

Count: count plural form

A form that is used as plural for masculine non-person nouns after numerals. This is a remnant of the dual form.

Examples: [bg] 2 молива / (2) moliva (2 pencils-count)

Ptan: plurale tantum

Some nouns appear only in the plural form even though they denote one thing (semantic singular); some tagsets mark this distinction.

Examples: [bg] финанси, дънки / finansi, danki (finances, jeans)

Coll: collective / mass / singulare tantum

Collective or mass or singulare tantum is a special case of singular. It applies to words that use grammatical singular to describe sets of objects, i.e. semantic plural.

Examples: [bg] човечество / chovechestvo (mankind)
