Wc present a formal semantics for an object- oriented formalism which allows for the represen- tation of plura, l objects (such as 'Three N', 'Most of the N', 'Some N',...). The semantics is given in terms of it mapping to a variant of Discourse Rep- resentation Theory. It is motivated by its suitability lkw natural language generation and interactive edit- ing of the representations.
