This chapter develops a systematic semantics for non-distributive predication with plural quantification that does not employ the resources of set theory or any other ‘singularization’ of plural reference. This methodological constraint has some value for philosophy (especially metaphysics), but it also has value for linguistics and for the foundations of mathematics.

Keywords:   non-distributive predication, plurals, singularization, linguistics
