This book investigates the semantics and syntax-semantics interface of
measurement constructions, such as (non-)split quantifiers and
comparatives. The cross-linguistic investigation reveals that seemingly
diverse constructions can be categorized into two classes depending on
whether they measure nominal or verbal predicates, and shows that the
classification accounts for why certain constructions have certain
characteristics concerning distributivity and single-event predicates.
Throughout the book, particular emphasis is placed on issues of
Syntax; semantics; generative syntax; generative semantics
