Number: number

Values: Count Dual Plur Sing

Number is an inflectional feature of nouns, pronouns, and other parts of speech (adjectives, determiners, verbs) that mark agreement with nouns.

Sing: singular number

A singular noun denotes one person, animal or thing.


Dual: dual number

A dual noun denotes two objects. The dual number is attested in Old Russian and has nearly vanished from East Slavic by the end of the Middle Russian/Old Ukrainian/Old Belarusian period with the exception of some fossilized expressions. As the inflectional paradigm was restructured, some dual endings were reused as either singular or plural endings.


Plur: plural number

A plural noun denotes several persons, animals or things.


Count: count plural (adnumeral form)

In the Middle Russian and Ruthenian, the adnumeral form is used in the construction with (mostly) paucal numerals. Sometimes it can be assosiated with old dual forms, sometimes - with modern genitive singular forms, and sometimes unique forms are used. Since the adnumeral construction calls for further investigation, all noun and adjective forms
the use of which is governed by numerals are marked Count.




Count is not used in the TOROT tagset.
