[Lingtyp] ordinals: biblio query

Hi !

We are a small group in Paris from the Fédération de Typologie of CNRS to work on a project on denumerals led by Bernard Fradin, on a diversity of languages from around the world. The scope of the project includes the ordinals. All of us gave an individual presentation on denumerals in our language of study. One of the aims of the project is to have a website presenting the data, but this is not ready yet. Meanwhile Polina could contact Bernard (ccopied) if she wants to know more about the project.

Very best,

Françoise Rose

Dear colleagues,


I post this query on behalf of a student, Polina Nasledskova, who is undertaking an areal typological research on ordinal numerals. So far she was only able to locate few publications on the topic (below). If you are aware of any typologically relevant discussion of ordinal numerals (especially their formation), or any interesting case studies on ordinal formation in a language / language group / family, could you please share this with her, either by writing her directly (she is in the copy) or by sending it to me (to my email, not to the list).
