doi: 10.3765/sp.3.3 Two kinds of modified numerals ∗

By Rick Nouwen

Abstract

Abstract In this article, I show that there are two kinds of numeral modifiers: (Class A) those that express the comparison of a certain cardinality with the value expressed by the numeral and (Class B) those that express a bound on a degree property. The goal is, first of all, to provide empirical evidence for this claim and second to account for these data within a framework that treats modified numerals as degree quantifiers

Topics: modified numerals, scalar quantification, modality
