Constructive Number Systems in Marori and Beyond
This paper examines complex number systems with unusual constructive strategies in languages such as Marori. One challenge that such systems present is the existence of a dual number category without dual morphology and a plural number category without plural morphology. This paper demonstrates that these number systems can be accounted for in a surprisingly straightforward way by proposing that they involve the composite binary features [+/-SG], [+/-PL], [+/-DU] and [+/-AUG]. Languages vary...[Show more]
