This page pertains to UD version 2.

Number: number

Values: Sing Plur

This feature typically applies to nouns and other parts of speech that mark agreement with nouns, i.e pronouns, [adjectives] (bm-POS/ADJ) and determiners.

In Bamana, the number marking for non-human is often optional, so the absence of a plural marker does not necessarily mean it is singular.

There are two plural markers: -w and -lù. -lù is less frequent and can be added only to animate nouns.

Sing: singular

In the treebank, Number=Sing is not used with nouns but it occurs with pronouns.

Examples

Plur: plural
