Abstract:

This book addresses recent developments in the study of quantifier phrases,
nominalizations, and the linking definite determiner. It reflects the
intense reconsideration of the nature of quantification, and of fundamental
aspects of the syntax and semantics of quantifier phrases. Leading
international scholars explore novel and challenging ideas at the
interfaces between syntax and morphology, syntax and semantics, morphology
and the lexicon. They examine core issues in the field, such as kind
reference, number marking, partitivity, context dependence and the way
presuppositions are built into the meanings of quantifiers. They also
consider how in this context definiteness and the definite determiner D
play a central role, and the way in which D is also instrumental in
nominalizations. With nominalization, the lexical semantic contribution of
verbs and their arguments becomes central, and within the perspective of
this book the question is asked whether syntactic nominalizations share
with noun phrases the same external layer, namely the functional projection
DP. If so, what exactly is the contribution of D in this case, and how much
of the lexical correspondence between nouns and verbs is preserved?

This book presents the latest thinking on cross-paradigm and
cross-linguistic approaches in three of the most vibrant and productive
research areas in linguistics. It paves the way towards a more
comprehensive understanding of how quantification, definiteness, and
nominalizations are encoded in the grammar.
