          Abstract

          In this paper we aim at a better understanding of the syntax-semantics of pluractional operators (POs) as markers of verbal plurality (Lasersohn 1995, Van Geenhoven 2004, Laca 2006). While previous literature argues or assumes that POs are (possibly lexical) plural operators that attach at the V-level, we bring evidence in favor of a treatment of POs as Aspect-level operators that bind plural event variables (as in Ferreira 2005). We formulate our claims on the basis of the Romanian supine, the nominal form of which has previously been argued to carry a PO (Iordăchioaia & Soare 2008).
