Abstract:

This collection of studies by leading scholars in the field focuses on the
semantics of non-definite (bare and indefinite) plural NPs. The
contributions in the first part concentrate on bare plurals and their
cross-linguistic counterparts. They discuss applicability of the notion of
'semantic incorporation' to bare plurals by contrasting them to bare
singulars, with the aim of accounting for the interaction between the
semantics of number and the degree of (in)dependency of the NP with respect
to the verb. The articles in the second part examine the relationship
between the semantics of number and the semantics of aspect. The
contributions in the third part concentrate on non-definite numerical noun
phrases by addressing a range of fundamental questions such as: the
semantics of indefinite time-phrases, numericals in classifier- and
non-classifier languages, scope interactions, the at least- and
exactly-readings, referential properties of numericals. The volume will be
welcomed by linguists interested in the semantics of number in non-definite
NPs.
