No plural morpheme

I enjoy reading fantasy lit. Sometimes the authors use archaic
language in the mouths of some of the characters. I recently read one
character saying, "It's seven mile away...."
I'm trying to keep Senjecan grammar as uncluttered as possible. I
thought that I might not use a plural morpheme if the plurality of the
noun was obvious as when, say, a number qualified the noun.
What are your experiences with this in either a natlang or your
conlang? I believe that Japanese does this.
