Confusing "Superfluous Plural Form" messages for some compact decimal forms

Reported by: pedberg Owned by: emmons
Component: surveytool-other Data Locale:
Phase: dvet Review: pedberg
Weeks: Data Xpath:


In the Survey Tool for many languages (e.g. French, Spanish), hovering over the winning entry for 5-digits-long-one and 6-digits-long-one produces the message "Superfluous Plural Form", see e.g. http://st.unicode.org/cldr-apps/v#/fr/Compact_Decimal_Formatting/1f6746c27bede353

ExampleGenerator produces this message if PluralSamples does not have examples for the combination of numeric value and plural form - and it does not have samples for values > 9999 (haven't looked at why this message does not appear for cases other than the above).

The problem is that we should actually be suppressing those forms. That is, the form

00 thousand

can never occur, since it will only be used with two digit items (10..99), and those can never be singular (for French or English). It is a bit more complicated, since we have to ensure that none of the infinite fractional values with two digits can be singular,

10.1 .. 10.9, 10.01 .. 10.99, .. 11.1 ..

I am assigned an open bug to actually suppress these in ST, but have had the time to do it. So the most we have right now is the 'warning'.
