Abstract:

This book presents a comprehensive account of quantifier scope in German.
The author investigates scope behavior of ordinary quantifiers and
negative, adverbial, interrogative, relative and particle quantifiers. The
areas which are dealt with include: relative scope in simple sentences,
absolute and relative scope in complex sentences, noun-phrase internal
scope, and scope behavior of indefinite noun phrases. A theory of explicit
and implicit quantification is proposed and a uniform process of scope
determination is sketched which encompasses the scope of explicit as well
as implicit quantifiers. Quantifier scope is a challenge to linguistic
theory as it is a phenomenon which is determined by the interplay of
diverse syntactic and semantic factors, which interact in a weighted and
cumulative way. The factors' interplay is part of the
syntax/semantics-interface, i.e., the constraints relating syntax and
semantics, which are considered to be relatively autonomous, parallel
levels connected by an interface of correspondence constraints.
