# Numeral

Numerals are LRUs that represent numbers.

## Natural Language

In the UNLarium framework, numerals are classified as:

• cardinal (CDN): describe quantity (“two”, “three”)
• ordinal (ORD): describe position (“first”, “second”)
• partitive (PTN): describe division (“half”, “two thirds”)
• multiplicative (MLN): describe repetition (“once”, “twice”)
• distributive (DTN): describe distributions (“in pairs”, “by the dozen”)

Numeral determiners must be classified as numerals.

## UNL

In UNL, numerals are to be replaced by numbers, without separators for thousands, and with "." for decimals. They are temporary UWs.

Cardinal numerals
1 = 1
one = 1
2 = 2
two = 2
MDCCCIX = 1819
1000000 = 1000000
1 000 000 = 1000000
1,000,000 = 1000000
3.14159 = 3.14159
3,14159 = 3.14159
Ordinal numerals
To be represented as @ordinal
1st = 1.@ordinal
first = 1.@ordinal
Partitive numerals
To be represented as cardinal numerals
1/3 = 1/3
one third = 1/3
half = 1/2
quarter = 1/4
Multiplicative numerals
To be represented as @times
once = 1.@times
twice = 2.@times
thrice = 3.@times
four times = 4.@times
Collective numerals
To be represented as @tuple
double = 2.@tuple
triple = 3.@tuple
sextuple = 6.@tuple
