I came upon this thread regarding how collective and similar categories can
be arranged.  Ithkuil has a very rich morphology in this regard.  Stems
inflect for nine Configurations (which describe the physical nature of sets,
assortments, collections, composites, arrangements, fuzzy sets, segmented
wholes, etc.), four Affiliations (which describe whether the Configurative
set is natural, by design, random, or an emergent gestalt), and four
Perspectives (which are the closest thing to Western number categories).
