This chapter presents an elaboration of the notion of quantity as proposed in this work both for nominals and for events. The notion will be argued to be the same one in both cases, differing in some important ways from, e.g., Krifka's notion of quantization. In that context, the chapter further argues for the syntactic rather than lexical representation of event argument roles, for the view of telicity as the ‘structuring’ of atelicity, and for the emergence of argument interpretation as an entailment from event structure rather than as a direct assignment relationship.
