Amy and the paucal "2"

Amy seems to use "two" as a paucal; when she says that she has "two wugs", she may indeed have two, but it could also be three or four.

I'm not sure what the range is; it's possibly that it's even a generic plural and could apply to, say, ten or even a hundred. Haven't tested that yet.
