Abstract
A wide range of Burmese nominal data are considered. Selectional considerations support the structure of [N Num CI Q] that is presented, which itself mandates an analysis of twei and my a as quantifiers generated in Q rather than true plural markers generated in Num. Li's (1999) analysis of Mandarin -men is adapted to apply to Burmese tau, and a structure is given for Burmese DP. Certain exceptional data with pronouns allow us set the stage for refinements of the ideas developed to this point.
