Usage notesEdit

The nominative of a collective numeral governs the genitive plural of the noun, pronoun, or adjective. The other cases agree with that of the noun, pronoun, or adjective. Not used with feminine nouns. Used mostly when speaking of children and with a few nouns that are used in the plural only, such as часы, очки, or with pronouns.
