Popis The paper proposes a unified morpho-semantic account for the typological variation inform and meaning of cardinal numerals. In particular, we investigate the morphological marking of different types of cardinals and argue that despite an apparent morphological chaos, it is possible toidentify cross-linguistically stable semantic ingredients, which compositionally provide the attested typesof numerals. We adopt the framework of Nanosyntax (Starke 2009 et seq.) as a model of morphology which, when applied to the semantic structures we propose, delivers the relevant marking patterns. The model we develop is broadly based on the idea that the meaning components are uniformly structuredacross languages, and they must all be pronounced, though languages differ in how they pronounce them.
