JS Bangs scripsit:

> When counted with "two", "three", and "four", nouns of all genders take
> the genitive singular. However, adjectives agreeing with a masculine or
> neuter noun take the genitive *plural*, while adjectives agreeing with
> feminine nouns take the *nominative plural*.

This represents the historic dual, which has spread to 3 and 4 as well.
