Following Babyonyshev (1993, 1997), we treat the dative Case borne by the nominal complement of the preposition k (‘to’) as inherent Case, rather than lexical Case. The reason is that complements of this preposition bear the theta-role of goal, which fits into the definition of inherent Case given above. An example of inherent dative licensed by the preposition k (‘to’) is given below: (16) Inherent Dative Case a. On podošel k oknu. 3 The interaction of Number and Case With regard to the internal structure of DPs, there are many competing analyses in the literature, none of which, to the best of our knowledge, can offer a satisfactory account of the DP-internal Case-licensing mechanisms.

The rest 19 (=35%) word types represent productive plurals that might not be rote-learned.
