Practical Manx
Liverpool University Press

Manx has proper nouns, common nouns and the verbnoun. Common nouns include: abstract nouns, collective nouns, actor-nouns and compound nouns. Manx nouns are either feminine or masculine, singular or plural, and may be declined. They may be formed in a variety of ways. The verbnoun is in many respects the cornerstone of Manx syntax. This chapter discusses the allocation of grammatical gender in Manx; the eight principal ways in which Manx nouns form the plural; collective nouns; the declension of nouns; nouns formed with affixes; compound nouns; diminutives; nouns expressing a state; the verbnoun; and avoidance of abstract nouns.

Keywords:   Manx Gaelic, Manx nouns, syntax, proper nouns, common nouns, verbnoun, plural, grammatical gender, collective nouns, declension
