Chapter 12. Number and numerals in Zande
In Zande singular and plural are distinguished morphologically on nouns, pronouns and verbs, but nouns and pronouns can also be marked for associative plural. While some number-mismatch can be observed with regard to the choice of pronouns in possessive constructions, number marking with regard to nouns follows transparent rules. The quantification of referents by a universal quantifier or by numerals can be expressed within the noun phrase as part of given information or from a post-predicate position as new information with an adverbial notion. Numerals and the universal quantifier are also used as self- standing adverbials and as bare nominals in the function of the predicates.
