Дво́е (Dvóje) is used with nouns that only have a plural form (pluralia tantum). It can also be used to denote a number of people. The nominative and accusative cases of a collective numeral govern the genitive plural of the noun, pronoun, or adjective. The other cases agree with that of the noun, pronoun, or adjective.

Usage notes[edit]

  • The nominative of a collective numeral governs the genitive plural of the noun, pronoun, or adjective. For the other cases the noun, pronoun, or adjective will be in the same case (except when meaning "a pair of"). Not used with feminine nouns. Used mostly when speaking of children and with a few nouns that are used in the plural only, such as часы́ (časý), очки́ (očkí), or with pronouns.
