NUM: numeral

Definition

A numeral is a word, functioning most typically as a determiner or pronoun, that expresses a number and a relation to the number, such as quantity, sequence, frequency or fraction.

Cardinal numerals are covered by NUM regardless of syntactic function and regardless of whether they are expressed as words (fyre “four”), digits (4) or Roman numerals (IV). By contrast, ordinal numerals like første (first) are always tagged ADJ.

Note that in Danish the decimal mark is most often a comma. Thousands are then separated by either a space or dot.
