NUM: numeral


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 7) and whether they are expressed as words (չորս), digits (4), Roman numerals (IV), or Armenian letters (Դ). Other words functioning as determiners (including pronominal quantifiers: interrogative and relative (քանի “how many”); demonstrative (այսքան “this many”); indefinite (մի քանի “several”); definite (բոլոր, ողջ “all, whole”) are tagged DET.

Note that some words that may be traditionally called numerals, are not tagged NUM, based on their syntactic and morphological behavior.

Note that there are no adverbial ordinal and multiplicative numerals in Armenian.

If the numerals inflect as nouns, they are tagged NOUN.
