This chapter shows how to use the material developed in the book to deal with some of the principal puzzles that have led people to the conclusion that the introduction of events into the semantics of English is important to understanding plurals. While events may be important to the semantics of English for other reasons, core issues involving plurals can be dealt with without giving a central role to events.

Keywords:   plurals, semantics, non-distributive predication
