Count: count plural form

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


Ptan: plurale tantum

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


Coll: collective / mass / singulare tantum

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