Numeral as base
quickinfo

Derivation of nouns by suffixation of numerals is not widespread, but the pattern nevertheless does occur. The diminutive suffix -DIM mainly derives nouns referring to banknotes, -er denotes persons of a certain age, and -ling describes sets in general. The suffix -te is idiosyncratic: it derives the word mannichtecrowd from the quantifier mannichmany.
