Thank you very much for the recently posted Basque data coming from =
Martin Haase and from Gontzal Aldai. The deictic plural is indeed =
related to the construction that Michael Daniel and I are studying; but, =
as Gontzal pointed out, the pattern that is the prototypical associative =
plural construction is the one exemplified by "Peru-ta" "Peter-and", in =
that it involves a nominal head.
