Varied Aspects of the Syntactic Relation Numeral ~ Noun
Article (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
The author describes numerous idiosyncracies of the syntactic relation NUMERAL ~ NOUN in Polish and in Serbo-Croatian. She emphasizes their dependence on the referential status of the noun phrase taking a numeral modifier. Several surface symptoms are presented which speak in favor of numerals having more in common with pronouns (pronominal quantifiers) than with adjectives (adjectival predicates). In so far as their semantic function is concerned numerals seem to be names of abstract elements of the arithmetical progression. As such, they are names of terms of a relation and not of the relation itself.
