This paper outlines a neo-Davidsonian event analysis of local plural anaphoric dependencies. It is proposed that an event-based distributivity operator can provide a unified semantic analysis of phenomena such as distance distributivity, reciprocity, and plural reflexivity. The analysis draws on several ideas from neo-Davidsonian event semantics, such as thematic separation and algebraic models of event structure.
