Dear netters,
	Anybody can kindly provide me with
examples for languages that count nouns without classifiers
(use Number directly with Nouns without Classifiers) and, at the same
time, do not inflect their nouns for number?  That is, a bare noun
can be interpreted as singular or plural ('book' meaning 'a book' or
'books') and can also occur with a number directly ('three book').

Thanks in advance.
