GRAMMAR NOTES: NUMERALS

GREEN LEAVES L
LSEG4: numerals in noun cluster
Amazingly, despite the fact that using (complex) numerals is a direct meter of an advanced civilization—therefore numerals are extremely important—most English grammar books do not trouble to consider numerals as forming a perfectly defined grammatical category (a morphologic element per se, same as the noun, for example). Most grammar authors label numerals as “adjectives”, “adverbs”, or [the easiest one] “modifiers”, and they solve all problems by not presenting numerals at all!

In
LSEG4, on the other hand, numerals are presented according to their capital importance in Grammar. No other book in the entire World  comes close to LSEG4 when it comes to detailing numerals appropriately.

LSEG4: SUBCATEGORIES OF NUMERALS



It is worth mentioning the category of numerals named “indefinite numerals”. Many of them take articles, since all numerals are nouns before anything elsedespite the fact that these indefinite numerals work, in most instances, as adjectives and adverbs (“the/a few”, “the/a little”).
