Numeral semantics: quantification, maximization and polarity

 

During the last several decades, numerals proved to be a rich source of debate in semantics and pragmatics. I will focus on one segment of this debate that centers around the question whether bare numerals are quantifiers, and if yes, of what kind. There is a consensus that numerals are not quantifiers over individuals of the same type as quantificational determiners like ‘every’, ’some’ and so on (type <et,<et,t>>).
