Sing: singular number

A singular noun denotes one person, animal or thing.

Examples:

Examples:

Count: count plural form

A form that is used as plural for masculine nouns after numerals. This is a remnant of the dual form.

Examples:

Ptan: plurale tantum

Some nouns appear only in the plural form even though they denote one thing (semantic singular). There are Pomak nouns of the plurale tantum type but the feature has not been employed in the treebank yet.

Examples:

Coll: collective / mass / singulare tantum

Collective nouns ending in -ja are always plural (pluralia tantum). Collective nouns ending in -(j)e, despite having always plural (collective) meaning, can be grammatically either singular (a less frequent case) or plural depending on the speaker’s perception of the set of objects as a whole or as distinct items (dialectal variation is possible).
