Add plural rules for Warlpiri (wbp)
|Reported by:||shervin||Owned by:||shervin|
wbp was added to 27, but my attempt to add plural rules couldn't pass the tests. We need to revisit the rules and add them.
Here is my communication with the submitter regarding plural rules (copied from ticket:7637 for reference):
Q: How many is considered "many"? This can be represented using a rule (e.g. "n % 100 = 11..99").
A: many would be n>2.
Q: Are decimals grouped with one, zero, or many? e.g. "1.5 days".
A: decimals are not something traditional Warlpiri dealt with much... I may have to check with others, but instinctively I feel like I would use "one" rules for 0.0~1.0, "two" rules for 1.0~2.0, and "many" rules for n>2.0... though thinking about use cases maybe always using "one" would be OK... or maybe always using "many"... dunno. For now, I guess always using "one" is the simplest and just as likely to be correct option. I'll try to get back to you on that.
Q: Is there any form of ordinals available?
A: ordinals. Hmm... I don't think so. You never say things like "first" "second" "third", you just use the numbers "one" "two" "three" etc. I found some documentation that mentions the lack of ordinals in Warlpiri, but there may be something similar to ordinals when describing family relationships... though they are not so much sequential as cyclic. I'm guessing that it's sufficiently different from "ordinals" though that we can ignore it and say "no ordinals".
Q: Is there any plural ranges? e.g. 0-1 centimeter ("one" form), 2-3 centimeters ("many" form), etc.
A: plural ranges. Thinking of how I would say it, I would either say the noun twice using both suffixes, completely omitting the number when the suffix makes it unambiguous, or I would use the correct plural form for the larger number.
