On the nature of prenumeral adjectives
Franc Marušič, Rok Žaucer, 2019, published scientific conference contribution (invited lecture)

Abstract: Following Greenberg’s generalization 20 prenominal adjectives follow numerals. In this paper we discuss a group of adjectives that appear in unexpected positions: adjectives preceding numerals prenominally. 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.
Keywords: Greenberg’s generalization 20, adjectives, numerals, noun phrase, Slovenian syntax
