Query:   Dear LigusitList members:

It would be extremely useful for me if anyone can suggest to me any idea about the following topics: 1) Distinctive features of the grammatical number in Slavonic languages, and 2) Main consequences of the disappearance of dual in Slavonic languages. I asked myself such things as: what morphological implications took this disappearance? (main consequences, I suppose concern the numeral phrase), and also, what typological implications should we expect when a language loose the dual number? I promise to post a note summarizing the huge amount (I hope) of answers I will surely receive.

Best regards,
