This feature is treated within the EDEMD and within traditional Danish dictionaries as defective inflectional patterns like singularia tantum and pluralia tantum, as a parallel to countability, i.e. non-countable or mass words like `maelk' (`milk'), `vand' (`water'), and a number of deverbal nouns like `drift' (`drift') are non-countable and also singularia tantum. Those words do not have a plural form. On the other hand, words like `penge' (`money') only have a plural form, which is also marked in the dictionaries mentioned above. The tags below are examples of the EUROTRA encoding, and they are values of the attribute sub-category of nouns in the lexicon. Other useful tags would be `count' and `non-count' as values in the lexicon for the attribute Countability. The corpus tagger will recognise the inflected forms occurring in the corpus.
