NUM: numeral

Definition

A numeral is a word, functioning most typically as a determiner, a pronoun or an adjective, that expresses a number and a relation to the number, such as quantity, sequence, frequency or fraction.

Cardinal numerals are covered by NUM regardless of syntactic function and regardless of whether they are expressed as words (五 / ng5 “five”) or digits (5). By contrast, ordinal numerals (such as 第一 / dai6jat1 “first”) are always tagged ADJ.
