Abstract The proper analysis of several , few , and many involves the hypothesis that each is a modifier of a usually unpronounced counterpart of the noun number . In the case of few and many , there is close link to overt phrases like a small number or a large number. Several is more complex and arguably involves a hidden comparative structure. The relation between these elements and numerals is also discussed.
