NumType: numeral type

In Tatar, numbers can be cardinal, ordinal or distributive. We also mark the interrogative ничә “how many” as a number, which inflects the same way the numbers are inflected and can become ordinal, distributive, or collective.

Card: cardinal number or corresponding interrogative


Ord: ordinal number or corresponding interrogative

In some languages, this is a subtype of adjective or adverb. In Tatar, we mark the ordinal numerals as NUM.

Ordinal numerals are formed by the suffix -ынчы/енче.


Dist: distributive numeral

Used to express that the same quantity is distributed to each member in a set of targets.

Distributive numerals are formed by the suffix -(ш)ар/әр.


Sets: collective numeral

Morphologically distinct class of numerals used to count sets of things, or nouns that are pluralia tantum. Some authors call this type collective numeral. In Tatar, collective numeral is expressed by the suffix -әү/-ау.
