Comment:
Property concepts are mainly expressed by verbal roots which receive the attributive (nominalizing) prefix -i (cf. Girón 2008:167,233) which is used to mark relative clauses (cg. Girón 2008:407). Numerals are expressed by verbal roots which receive the attributive (nominalizing) prefix -i (have exactly the same construction as with verbal roots expressing property concepts) (cf. Girón 2008:297). Concluded from examples that the most common word order is NOUN-ADJ, whereas NUM-NOUN (despite that constructions with numerals and property concepts seem to be structurally similar).
