Not illustrated. 1919 edition. Excerpt: ...beautiful women). If the noun itself is really an adjective it takes the genitive plural after three, four and five, as Ma pa6oraxT, (two workmen), and, if a real adjective is used with it, this is also used in the genitive plural, as Ma cnocofiHuxT, pa6oraxT, (two capable workmen). From five on, the noun qualified must be in the genitive plural, as Hhtb Ctojiobt, (five tables); nan. Cojibuihxt. Ctojiobi. (five large tables); bb aceHmHHH (two women); flfih KpacHBHxT, weHmHHii (two beautiful women). Whenever two, three and four are combined with twenty, thirty, forty, etc., the noun is in the genitive singular, just as if two, three and four stood alone, as Area fln, aTB Ba crojia (twenty-two tables), but flBa flnari. Ctoiobt. (twenty tables);, a;eBHHOCTO Tpn aceHmHHH (ninety-three women). On the other hand, after opm (one) in all genders, the noun must be in the singular, even when twenty-one, thirty-one, fortyone, etc., are indicated, thus OAR M Ctojtb (one table); oHa aceHmHHa (one woman); Oflho hth (one child), and also, a;Bafln, aTB Ohm. Ctojit. (twenty-one tables); TpHflnaTi. o, a;Ha aceHinHHa (thirty-one women); Copokt. Oflho hth. (fortyone children), etc. Sometimes in the literary style, if an adjective comes between the numeral and the noun, the adjective may be in the nominative plural instead of the genitive plural, as flB6 jcpacHBuxt. 6bohkh, or, a;B6 Kpacn Btih fifi Bohkh (two pretty little girls); ppa. (sojibuih xT, o ia, or flBa 6oJibmie osia (two large houses). This does not affect the genitive of the qualified noun which must follow the rule given above. The student must learn the numerals by heart, paying especial attention to the accent. Vocabulary library fears (takes gen.) more was (fem.) at the time of war thief moshow more
