Numeral suffixes
quickinfo

It is assumed here that within the area of derivation there is only one suffix to form numerals, i.e. -resom, as in fiifresomwith the five of us. Consequently there is only one possible base category, that is, this suffix can only be attached to another numeral.

It should be noted that there are also suffixes that are used to derive cardinal numbers and fractions. We have decided to deal with these topics under the heading of inflection.
