The differences in agreement in number in constructions with cardinal numerals in Bulgarian and Polish are treated. On a syntagmatic plane the differences between the two languages are actually connected with the existence of a numerical plural form in Bulgarian and its absence in Polish. In both languages numerals greater than one always combine with a noun in the plural (sometimes with the numerical plural form in Bulgarian). On the syntactic level the difference is considerable and may be explained in terms of the semantic agreement in Bulgarian (the predicate is in the plural when the numeral is greater than one), whereas in Polish the agreement is grammatical (dwaj chlopcy spiewaja, but pieciu chlopcow spiewa).
