ABSTRACT
The paper presents the nouns and the distinctive properties of prototypical noun phrases. As concerns number and countability, grammatical features of the NP force or strongly favour either a count or a non-count interpretation. On the other hand, nouns accept a wide range of modifiers within the nominal. They may be inside the nominal, being called internal modifiers, or they may be external, when they are located within the NP but outside the head nominal.
