On the nature of prenumeral adjectives
Franc Lanko Marušič, Rok Zaucer
January 2016

We argue that these adjectives violate cross-linguistic generalizations only apparently, as the noun phrases with such adjectives actually contain additional covert structure – structure that is not realized phonologically/phonetically.
