Portuguese term or phrase:resulta em singularidade
Similarmente, em Paez, a ausência do morfema plural -na- não resulta em singularidade.
Similarly, in Paez, the absence of the plural morpheme -na- does not result in singularity
A pluralidade não é obrigatoriamente marcada. Nesse sentido, a ausência da marca de ‘plural’ não indica que a forma nominal seja ‘singular
Plurality is not obligatorily marked. In this sense, the absence of the ‘plural’ marker does not indicate that the nominal form is singular.
Explanation: I would reward it like this. Its number, be it singular or plural, is what it is, and language simply reflects this. Language does not have a causal effect, but rather reflects what the semantics or underlying meaning actual is.
