comment Grammar for counting in Chinese (for non-native speakers of Chinese)
Please all stop worrying about the classifier. All forms can be given as input, just as I need numerus forms in other languages (PRINTCOUNTen($n,"man","men"); PRINTCOUNTru($n,"собак", "собаки", "собак")) I can be content with imposing a calling convention PRINTCOUNTzh($n,"个房子"). All the "noun stuff" will ultimately come from professionals, I just need to get the counting right :)

I'm ok with classifiers as I can simply require them as part of zhe input. However, I am concerned with the classifier changing depending on the number. As I understand you, however, this change should not happen and Chinese really has no such things as singular, dual, plural (or the funny variants used in Russain)?
