Abstract: Zimmermann (2002) identifies two kinds of distance-distributive items across languages. The first kind (e.g. each) is restricted to distribution over individuals; the second kind (e.g. German jeweils) can also be interpreted as distributing over salient occasions. I explain this behavior by formally relating this split to the two distributivity operators proposed in the work of Link (atomic operator) and Schwarzschild (cover-based operator), which I reformulate in a Neo-Davidsonian framework.
