Model Theoretic Semantics for Japanese Floating Quantifiers and Their Scope Properties
Preview not available

Abstract

A model theoretic and fully compositional treatment of floating quantifiers in Japanese is proposed employing a surface-based syntactic analysis. The present account not only overcomes a difficulty arising from the fact that a floating quantifier and its host are structurally independent of each other but is also capable of offering a principled account for scope ambiguity involving a floating quantifier and other quantificational elements.
