Usage notesEdit

  • The cardinal numbers "one" and "two" succeed the modified noun or substantive and agree with its grammatical gender.
  • Adding the cardinal numbers "one" and "two" is optional, since nouns have morphologically singular and dual forms. Thus, when mentioned, it usually implies some emphasis comparable to the addition of only or merely in English.
