Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the issue of quantification within Noun Phase's (NPs), which subsumes non-numerical quantifiers and numerical quantifiers. It presents a survey of the material found in the corpus, its classification with respect to morphosyntactic characteristics, the meaning of the various forms and their temporal and geographical distribution. The chapter studies the word order of both types of quantifiers. It deals with the morphology of the numerals and then proceeds to a study of their morphosyntax, focussing in particular on the agreement phenomena they are involved in. A comprehensive morphological analysis of the Anatolian numerals is the study written by Eichner (1992 [1991]), but it is no longer up-to-date for Hieroglyphic Luwian because some of the data have been subject to re-evaluation. In the domain of the non-numerical quantifiers, HLuwian only provides sufficient data for two universal quantifiers, 430 (punata) and tanima/i.

Keywords: Anatolian numerals; Eichner; Hieroglyphic Luwian corpus; morphology; non-numerical quantifiers; noun phase (NP); numerical quantifiers; punata; tanima/i
