Title: Quantifiers in Language and Logic
Written By: Stanley Peters
Dag Westerståhl
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199291250
Description:

Quantification is a topic which brings together linguistics, logic, and
philosophy. Quantifiers are the essential tools with which, in language or
logic, we refer to quantity of things or amount of stuff. In English they
include such expressions as 'no,' 'some,' 'all,' 'both,' and 'many.' Peters
and Westerståhl present the definitive interdisciplinary exploration of how
they work - their syntax, semantics, and inferential role.
