"the cardinal numerals unus (1), duo (2) and tres (3) are declined; the others from quatuor (4) to centum (100) are used unchanged whatever the gender and case of the noun which they qualify" (Stearn 1983); cf. 'both;' cf. ambo, ambae, ambo,numerical adj. expressed in plural only and declined like duo, duae, duo: 'both', two together, the two, of objects naturally in pairs, such as hands or the ends of two-ended objects; see pair; see second; see numerals; see twin;
       [no singular]       always plural
