Adnominal Distributive Numerals in Bangla

  • Ishani Guha


This paper provides an introduction to the adnominal distributive numerals in Bangla and their interpretations. Discussing the licensing conditions of the adnominal distributive numerals, the paper classifies them with distributive items that require overt or covert, syntactically c-commanding clause-mate pluralities as their antecedents. The paper also shows that the Bangla distributive numerals can distribute over contextually salient non-atomic covers of plurals.
