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.
