The second part of the article analyses inflection of general numerals from 5 to 10, mass and various numerals featuring in 'Rozmyslanie przemyskie', the vastest 16th-century apocryph, in connection with the form of the described noun. Numerals from 5 to 10 still have the old declinational endings, e.g. piaci, szesci, siedmi, dziesiaci, piacia, siedmia. Syntactic differences in comparison with contemporary forms result from the lack of masculine-personal category on the one hand, e.g. dziesiec mezów, and from the beginnings of the syntactic agreement (which is obligatory nowadays), occurring beside the former syntactic reign on the other, e.g. siedmi pannam, dziesiaci dziewicam, o dziesiaci dziewicach, po siedmi lat, po dziesiaci lat, nad piacia miast. Among inflectional forms of mass numerals, of which only the former neutral gender singular has survived, there are remnants of both other genders e.g. siedmiora prosba, dwoj lud, dwoje rzecz and other numbers, e.g. dwoja elementa, pieciory ksiegi. These examples prove the original congruence between this kind of numerals and nouns, e.g. dziesiecioro przykazanie, o dziewiecioru blogoslawieniu. There are, however, some examples of the syntactic reign, e.g. dwoje garliczek. The linguistic relict shows formation process of morphological dominants on the one hand and non-stable syntax between numerals and nouns on the other hand.
