Book Information

   

Title: Quantification
Written By: Anna Szabolcsi
Description:

Quantification forms a significant aspect of cross-linguistic research into both
sentence structure and meaning. This book surveys research in quantification
starting with the foundational work in the 1970s. It paints a vivid picture of
generalized quantifiers and Boolean semantics. It explains how the discovery
of diverse scope behaviour in the 1990s transformed the view of
quantification, and how the study of the internal composition of quantifiers
has become central in recent years. It presents different approaches to the
same problems, and links modern logic and formal semantics to advances in
generative syntax. A unique feature of the book is that it systematically
brings cross-linguistic data to bear on the theoretical issues, covering French,
German, Dutch, Hungarian, Russian, Japanese, Telugu (Dravidian), and
Shupamem (Grassfield Bantu) and points to formal semantic literature
involving quantification in around thirty languages.
