Floating quantifiers: handle with care 
by Jonathan David Bobaljik

"The claim that since (1a) and (1b) "mean" the same, they must be
transformationally related relies on the tacit assumption that there
would be no other way for the two sentences to mean the same. The
brief discussion of adverbial quantification above is intended to show
not that this assumption is false, but that the question is still open."

"Behind the scenes, linguist editorial work is partly editing an
