Granularity shifting: Experimental evidence from numerals

Sassoon G., Zevakhina N.
The paper presents an experimental evidence for Lewis’s (1979) constraints on granularity shifting, Krifka’s (2007) representation of granularity in numerals, and its extension to adjectives. Thus, it supports the view that general principles govern the setting of a granularity level and its shifting within discourse in different domains of grammar, including simple and complex numerals and unmodified and modified adjectives.
