Datapoint Gullah/Occurrence of nominal plural markers

Turner ([1949] 2002) reports that there is “practically” no plural marking on nouns. He reports no semantic criteria for the availability of morphological plural. Plural with dem as marker is very common in De Nyew Testament 2005. See also Mufwene (1986b).
