NOUN: noun

Description

Nouns are a part of speech typically denoting a person, place, thing, animal or idea.

The NOUN tag is intended for common nouns only.

Common nouns

Welsh nouns are either masculine or feminine, and inflect for case and number. Fo some nouns the lemma has plural meaning, a suffixe -yn/-en indicates the singular. In the Welsh treebank the singular form is always used for the lemma column.

Verbal nouns

v2 UD documentation for NOUN states that “some verb forms such as gerunds and infinitives may share properties and usage of nouns and verbs. Depending on language and context, they may be classified as either VERB or NOUN”.

Verbal nouns are marked as NOUN in the Welsh UD scheme. Verbal noun forms are used widely in Welsh for the progressive aspectual phrases (yn gwneud “making”).
