Term:
{pl} tag » answer
by renbyska (SK), 2016-09-10, 18:39  Spam?  
I´d like to submit this problem for a discussion in order to achieve an agreement in using the {pl} tag with nouns in plural in each language of the EN-SK language pair when contributing. Should be {pl} placed with just one or can be placed with both languages? The GL-7 says:

PLURAL / SINGULAR TAGS
"For nouns in languages without grammatical gender, such as English, Hungarian or Turkish, use {pl} and {sg} in the respective field to denote plural or singular if unusual or different from the grammatical number in the other language.
If both languages in the pair have no grammatical gender, use the tags when the grammatical number is not the same on both sides."

In the DE-EN dict.cc plural tag is used with one language only:

SK has gender tags, EN has none. So it's like in German-English.
