I would like to thank Edit Moravcsik for her great summary on classifiers
and plural marking. Just one further question.
Can somebody say whether for any of the languages where "number marking is
restricted to a specifiable subset of plural-referent nouns" (other
than Basque): Hungarian, Welsh, Aymara?, Hawaiian, Yukaghir, Mari
(Cheremis), there is a different translation for:

	(1) three musketeers
	(2) the three musketeers

If so, does the equivalent of (2) show number marking?
