Abstract:

Plural marking, numeral classifiers and reduplication constitute the main
means of quantification marking in the domain of grammar. The contributions in
this book focus on the typological correlation between the three different
strategies for quantification, as well as on some general issues. A better
understanding of the quantification strategies in the languages of China will
enrich our comprehension of human language and thought. The book is expected
to have an impact on the study of linguistic typology, language contact, and
patterns of the evolution.
