Abstract:

This dissertation investigates children’s acquisition of the restrictions on
quantifier scope interaction which apply in double-object constructions. It
mainly focuses on a specific non-targetlike performance pattern that children
display under experimental conditions, a performance pattern which we name
‘the Reverse-pattern’. This study presents a systematic experimental
investigation into a variety of (lexical) factors which are hypothesized to
cause the Reverse-pattern. We will show that children’s non-targetlike
performance is in fact restricted to sentences containing distributive
universal quantifiers and will subsequently present an account which
attributes children’s non-targetlike performance to the specific verification
strategies that children employ to evaluate sentences containing distributive
universal quantifiers. This dissertation should be of interest to anyone
working in the field of language acquisition, the semantics and syntax of
quantification, language processing and pragmatics.
