The focus of this paper is on the grammatical ambiguity of the category of number, determining its basic types, and detecting the assymetry of its grammemes, especially in terminology, which has not been observed and appropriately described in Croatian language manuals. Since the relationship between the category of countability of nouns and the category of number is tightly intertwined and cannot be completely circumvented, it will be discussed with reference to the Croatian literature and some controversial opinions. Several additions to the terminology will be proposed as well as in interpreting the category of number in order to improve not only grammatical descriptions but also the grammatical treatment of dictionary entries, which clearly reflect the inseparability of grammar and semantics precisely by using the example of the category of number.
