A unique operator for verbal pluractionality and numeral distributivity
AbstractCardinal numerals in Seri (isolate, Mexico) are verbs, which, like most verbs in this language, can express pluractionality, i.e. multiplicity of events. I argue that pluractional numerals are interpreted as distributive numerals and give a description of their distributive properties. I propose a fully compositional analysis of pluractionality which can combine with numerals and other verbs to derive the observed effects of each.
