We present a formal semantics for an object-oriented formalism which allows for the representation of plural objects (such as 'Three N', Most of the N', 'Some N', . . .). the semantics is given in terms of a mapping to a variant of Discourse Representation Theory. It is motivated by its suitability for natural language generation and interactives editing of the representations.
