Non-Conservativity with Precise Proportions

Measurement structures with exact proportions allow seemingly non-conservative interpretations (e.g. We hired 70% students, meaning 70% of hirees were students). Languages vary in how they distinguish between conservative (We hired 70% of the students) and non-conservative interpretations. We explore such variation and its repercussions for the syntax-semantics of measurement.
