    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This is the handout from a talk on nominal classification systems: gender systems, numeral classifier systems, and some other related systems that do not fall under either of these concepts. There is now a consensus that the traditional idea that &amp;quot;gender&amp;quot; is a coherent cross-linguistic concept cannot be maintained, and I argue that the discipline needs the new concept of &amp;quot;nomifier system&amp;quot; (or nomification system, short for &amp;quot;nominal classification system&amp;quot;), in terms of which the narrower concepts &amp;quot;gender system&amp;quot; and &amp;quot;numeral classifier system&amp;quot; can be defined.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
