Abstract

The article proposes an analysis of quantitative and qualitative expressions in terms of the notion of classifier. The task of classifiers is to classify or categorize the denotation of nouns according to different parameters. This classification can be objective or subjective. The quantitative objective (ontological) classifiers, with their inherent scalar nature serve as a model for qualitative subjective (axiological) expressions. The categorization performed by subjective classifiers therefore often has a derogatory meaning since categorization confines the referent to a category whereas attribution just confers a certain quality to it.
