A Typological Study of Overcounting Numerals

  • This paper conducts a typological analysis of overcounting numerals across world languages, examining their structure, distribution, compositional meaning, word order correlations and diachronic development. Drawing on extensive data from 65 languages, it identifies universals and differences in their compositional meanings, investigates correlations of their internal orders with general word order patterns, and identifies four diachronic development trends, along with factors causing their emergence, evolution and morphological variations.
