The publication embeds an outline and an research of the outdated English numeral procedure right into a broader, cross-linguistic dialogue. It presents a theoretical framework for the examine of numerals and numeral structures of ordinary languages, bridging the distance among contemporary findings within the cognitive sciences on numeracy and the recognized typological generalisations on cardinal numerals.

The outdated English numeral procedure indicates a couple of peculiarities no longer present in the present-day languages of Europe. Its special description is for that reason a terrific locus for learning the positive factors of linguistic quantity expressions by way of their morpho-syntactic homes and of the constitution of numeral systems.
The strategy is cutting edge in that it combines an in depth research of the numeral procedure with the research of the grammatical homes of cardinal numerals. For the outline of previous English, the research makes a speciality of elements of data constitution and of referent identity in quantificational structures. This ends up in a singular point of view at the language-internal version within the contract styles among numerals and quantified nouns, permitting the writer to check and refine a few lengthy status tenets within the research of numerals and to supply replacement factors.

Rather than seeing numerals as a hybrid observe category, the writer argues that this change within the morpho-syntactic behaviour follows identifiable styles particular to the notice type numeral. He debts for those styles by means of positing diverse, cross-linguistically uniform levels within the emergence of numeral structures, in addition to various levels of discreteness of the quantified noun. in addition, the writer demonstrates that the restrictions choosing this alteration in previous English have visible parallels throughout languages.
