Etymology[edit]

From Middle French numeral, from Latin numerālis (pertaining to a number), from numerus (a number).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

numeral (plural numerals)

  1. A symbol that is not a word and represents a number, such as the Arabic numerals 1, 2, 3 and the Roman numerals I, V, X, L.
  2. (linguistics) A word representing a number.
    • 2002, Laurie Bauer & Rodney Huddleston, “Lexical word-formation”, in The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language, page 1715:
      We use the term numeral for linguistic expressions and number for meanings. For example, five is a numeral expressing the number "5" - and fifteen hundred and one thousand five hundred are different numerals expressing the same number, "1,500".
  3. (card games) A card whose rank is a number (usually including the ace as 1).
    Jacks, queens, and kings are not numerals.
