The syntactic position of numerative complex in Indonesian

Netkachev I.

In Indonesian, numerative complex may either precede or follow the noun. In my work, I will show that two factors determine the position of the numerative complex: specificity and information structure. Information structure is also found to be significant for related constructions, i.e. those involving “floating” of numerals. I conclude that the position of numerals may be determined by compositional obligatoriness.
