On the Two Types of Cardinal-Noun Constructions in Romanian

Publication: Revue roumaine de linguistique, LVIII (2), p. 179-187
Publisher:Editura Academiei
Abstract:The paper aims to distinguish syntactically between lower cardinals in Romanian (1–19) and higher cardinals in Romanian (19–). Lower cardinals in Romanian will be shown to sit in the specifier position of the noun, while higher cardinals will be shown to enter a head-complement relation with the noun. The paper will also show that lower cardinals in Romanian enter two types of syntactic configurations; more precisely, when nouns designating language units are involved, lower cardinals may behave both adjectivally and nominally. Finally, the paper will hypothesize that the prepositional construction with cardinals in Romanian is a type of prepositional-genitive construction.
