My dissertation, entitled Ways of Pluralizing Events, argues for fine-grained subtypes of plural event reference in the verbal domain to match the wide variety of plural individual reference we're familiar with from the nominal domain. Based on original fieldwork, this argument is made through an analysis of verbal pluractionality in the Mayan language Kaqchikel, though latter chapters discuss extensions to English. This paper here, which is currently under review, now supersedes chapters 5-6. Stay tuned for more papers based on the dissertation.
