Title: Plural Predication
Written By: Thomas McKay
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199278145
Description:

Plural predication is a pervasive part of ordinary language. We can say
that some people are fifty in number, are surrounding a building, come from
many countries, and are classmates. These predicates can be true of some
people without being true of any one of them; they are non-distributive
predications. However, the apparatus of modern logic does not allow a place
for them. Thomas McKay here explores the enrichment of logic with
non-distributive plural predication and quantification. His book will be of
great interest to philosophers of language, linguists, metaphysicians, and
logicians.
