Comment:
'Numerals usually occur before the head noun, or follow the head noun and precede the classifier.' When numerals are in the same noun phrase with demonstratives, they follow the demonstrative. With animate nouns, the numerals often follow the head noun; the numerals carry the gender or class suffix that agrees with the noun.” (Miller 1999:4). See Miller (1999:46) for additional info.
