Etymology[edit]

From Middle Dutch nommer, from Old French nombre, from Latin numerus. The shift from masculine gender in Middle Dutch to neutral gender in modern Dutch is potentially due to the influence of its synonyms getal and cijfer which both have the neutral gender.

  • IPA(key): /ˈnʏ.mər/
  • (file)
  • Hyphenation: num‧mer
  • Rhymes: -ʏmər
