Nurmio, Silva, “Collective nouns in Welsh: a noun category or a plural allomorph?”, Transactions of the Philological Society 115:1 (2015): 58–78.
- journal article
A noun category in Welsh which has a shorter form for a collection/plural meaning and a suffixed singulative for a single instance has been described in the literature as both a number category and a plural allomorph, often with terminological ambiguity and blurring of boundaries between different noun types. This paper is an investigation of the features of these nouns using a number of theoretical approaches which cumulatively support the argument that collective can be considered a full number category in Welsh.
