Editor for this issue: Jessica Boynton
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 2: Scalar Meaning of 'Any'
From: Jiang Yong <jiangyongfudan.edu.cn>
Subject: Scalar Meaning of 'Any'
Hi, I am a student in Fudan University in Shanghai, China. I'd like to know
why the word 'any' has the scalar meaning (even). Does its scalar meaning
come from the word itself (i.e. the lexical meaning) or from its
interaction with context? In addition, what drives the word to divide its
functions into f-c and p-s? I have read some papers and books about it, but
Thank you all!
Best wishes for the new year!
