36 Sortal numeral classifiers

This feature is described more fully in chapter 36.


This feature (based on WALS feature 55, by David Gil) is about sortal numeral classifiers, which divide the inventory of count nouns into semantic classes, each of which is associated with a different classifier. An example is Chinese Pidgin English two piecee coolie 'two coolies'.
