Abstract : We developed a type-theoretical framework for natural lan- guage semantics that, in addition to the usual Montagovian treatment of compositional semantics, includes a treatment of some phenomena of lex- ical semantic: coercions, meaning, transfers, infelicitous co-predication. In this setting we see how the various readings of plurals collective, dis- tributive, coverings,

. can be modelled.
