I think we’re going to see a lot more of her.

As far as I know, "a lot" is a quantifier, as is "more".

I would like to know which function one or the other represents - In addition to knowing if the example follows the grammar.

The question arose because I don't remember seeing two quantifiers together.

Thanks :))

A lot isn't a quantifier (you can't say "A lot bread").

A lot of is a quantifier.

I don't know how the current analyses deal with a lot. It seems to be an adverbial, but in most contexts it can only follow, not precede (He talks a lot, but not *He a lot talks).

But with comparatives it can only precede (I got there a lot quicker, but not *I got there quicker a lot - that would be interpreted as a lot = many times). But that's where a lot more, a lot less belong.
