Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to show that Polish simple fractional numerals, i.e. ĆWIERĆ 'quarter', PÓŁ 'half' and PÓŁTORA 'one and a half' bear the intrinsic plural number, even though they combine with singular nouns. Simultaneously, it gives two new arguments for considering these lexemes as numerals (as opposed to considering them as unambiguous nouns).
