    Quantity Evaluations in Yudja: Judgements, Language and Cultural Practice.Suzi Lima & Susan Rothstein - 2020 - Synthese 197 (9):3851-3873.
    In this paper we explore the interpretation of quantity expressions in Yudja, an indigenous language spoken in the Amazonian basin, showing that while the language allows reference to exact cardinalities, it does not generally allow reference to exact measure values. It does, however, allow non-exact comparison along continuous dimensions. We use this data to argue that the grammar of exact measurement is distinct from a grammar allowing the expression of exact cardinalities, and that the grammar of counting and the grammar (...)

    Container Constructions in Yudja: Locatives, Individuation and Measure.Suzi Lima - 2016 - The Baltic International Yearbook of Cognition, Logic and Communication 11.
    The possible interpretations of container phrases has been long debated in the formal semantics literature because container phrases can be associated with a variety of possible readings that go from individuation to measure. In this paper we explore the interpretation of container phrases in Yudja, a language where container phrases are optional in construction with numerals and are morphosyntactically identical to locative phrases. Based on experimental studies with Yudja children and adults we intend to show that these expressions are ambiguous (...)

    Bare Nouns in Brazilian Portuguese: An Experimental Study on Grinding.Kayron Beviláqua, Suzi Lima & Roberta Pires de Oliveira - 2016 - The Baltic International Yearbook of Cognition, Logic and Communication 11.
    Much literature has explored the interpretation of the bare singular in Brazilian Portuguese. Pires de Oliveira and Rothstein claim that BS nouns are mass because they denote kinds and argue that this explains why only the BS in Brazilian Portuguese can have a non-cardinal interpretation. In this paper, based on an experimental task with Brazilian Portuguese adult speakers, we explore one of their predictions, namely that the ‘volume interpretation’ of the BS cannot be explained as a case of Grinding. Our (...)
