Description of the linguistic expressions of fractions

Abstract : This paper proposes a typology of fractional numbers. A few fractional numbers can be expressed by suppletive (non-systematic) forms, whereas analytical (systematic) linguistic patterns of formation produce “bi-dimensional” numerical forms which refer to both the numerator and the denominator (double argument), or “mono-dimensional” forms which refer to only one of these numbers (single argument). Moreover, a fraction in a partitive expression can be an indivisible semantic unit or may, on the contrary, have a noun or a measure word inserted between its constituents.
