"Number terms as proper names". In this talk, Friederike Moltmann will review her arguments for number terms being nonreferential in Moltmann (2013a, b) within the greater perspective of (my) recent work on proper names. She will argue that some of those arguments have to be reinterpreted: they show that number terms are mass (or number-neutral) terms in certain languages rather than showing their nonreferentiality.
