ORIGIN 1990s: from obsolete numps, 'a stupid person,' of unknown origin.
Nominals with a quantity reading are NumPs in the sense of Li (1998).
Li (1998) claims that NumPs differ from individual-denoting nominals in that no DP is projected and that NumP is projected somewhere above NP.
As NumPs, they do not show the distribution constraint.
