Good day, dear readers of the SoftMaker blog.kz! Collective numeral (jınaqtaý san esim) of the Kazakh language represents a collection of homogeneous objects. Jınaqtaý san esim is formed from cardinal numerals (from bir to jeti) using the ending -aý (after a hard base) and -eý (after a soft base).
There are 7 collective numerals in the Kazakh language:
Collective numerals have possessive and take case endings in simple and possessive case:
úsh – eý – miz — the three of us
ek – eý – iń — the two of you
ek – eý – ińiz — the two of you
ek – eý – i — the two of them
When adding these affixes to the numerals eki, alty, and jeti, the final -y/-i are dropped:
y/aý — “alty”
i)eý — “two”
i)eý — “seven”
