6.1.1. Cardinal numerals

This section starts in with a discussion of the form of the cardinal numerals. It will be shown that the rules for coining numerals are pretty complex and allow a relatively large amount of variation. Section focuses on the semantics of the numerals, and will show that determiner-less noun phrases normally allow two readings, which we will refer to as the indefinite and the partitive reading. Section discusses the position of the numerals within the noun phrase. Finally, Section, discusses modification of the numerals.
