Preliminary Recommendations

Language-specific features: Definiteness

In Danish, nouns can be marked for definiteness with the enclitic article; in singular common gender: `-(e)n'; singular neuter: `-(e)t'; and in plural: `-(e)ne' (no gender distinction).

The order of inflectional endings is: number + enclitic article + genitive suffix, e.g.

`lampe' + `s'
`lampe' + `r' + `ne' + `s'

which respectively give the tag combinations
