Linguistic LingField(s):  Morphology

Query:   Laura Janda and I are currently researching some typological issues that
have led us to investigate numeral classifiers in Asian (e.g., Mandarin
Chinese) and other languages (e.g., Yucatec Maya).

We are interested in knowing if anyone who researches numeral classifier
systems can inform us about a language/languages that have sortal numeral
classifiers but clearly no mensural classifiers (presumably having simple
quantifiers instead).

We realize that theoretical assumptions may come into play here, and would
appreciate clarity in that regard.

Thank you,
