Abstract:

Quantification is a topic which brings together linguistics, logic, and
philosophy. Quantifiers are the essential tools with which, in language or
logic, we refer to quantity of things or amount of stuff. In English they
include such expressions as 'no,' 'some,' 'all,' 'both,' and 'many.' Peters
and Westerståhl present the definitive interdisciplinary exploration of how
they work - their syntax, semantics, and inferential role.

Linguistic Field(s): Semantics
                            Syntax

Written In: English (eng )
