Nouns, Pronouns, and Plurals Japanese nouns, pronouns, and similar word classes in Japanese work much the way they do in English. Weve talked a bit about nouns already, but this time well go over nouns, as well as pronouns, in more detail. Mass Noun Thesis: (a) Classifier languages have no count nouns; and (b) all the common nouns of the languages are mass nouns. This thesis yields an explanation of why classifier languages employ classifiers in numeral noun phrases. No classifier language nouns can combine directly with numerals, because mass nouns (e. g. , water) cannot do so. This study examines the acquisition of Japanese numeral classifiers in Japanese preschool children, ages 3 to 6, with a primary emphasis on developing comprehension ability.

This makes the translations of three cows draw syntactic parallels to the translations of, e. g. , three pounds of Classifiers have long been an interest for many linguists. In many Asian languages like Japanese and Chinese, nouns often require numeral classi fiers when they are quantified (Bond&
