Abstract:

This dissertation investigates children’s acquisition of the restrictions onquantifier scope interaction which apply in double-object constructions. Itmainly focuses on a specific non-targetlike performance pattern that childrendisplay under experimental conditions, a performance pattern which we name‘the Reverse-pattern’. This study presents a systematic experimentalinvestigation into a variety of (lexical) factors which are hypothesized tocause the Reverse-pattern. We will show that children’s non-targetlikeperformance is in fact restricted to sentences containing distributiveuniversal quantifiers and will subsequently present an account whichattributes children’s non-targetlike performance to the specific verificationstrategies that children employ to evaluate sentences containing distributiveuniversal quantifiers. This dissertation should be of interest to anyoneworking in the field of language acquisition, the semantics and syntax ofquantification, language processing and pragmatics.
