About this product
- DescriptionQuantification has been at the heart of research in the syntax and semantics of natural language since Aristotle. The last few decades have seen an explosion of detailed studies of the syntax and semantics of quantification and its relation to the rest of the theory of grammar, resulting in a highly sophisticated understanding of the mechanisms of quantification. This book considers the ways natural languages vary with respect to their realisation of quantificational tions. Drawing on data from English, German, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Hausa and others, the authors also link the variation in the expression of quantification to the tions of polarity sensitivity, free-choice and indefiniteness.
- Author BiographyGeorge Tsoulas is a senior lecturer in linguistics at the University of York. After an undergraduate degree in linguistics and literature at the University of Strasbourg he went on to study for a PhD at the University of Paris VIII. His research to date has focused on the syntax/semantics and syntax/pragmatics interfaces, and more specifically on issues of quantification, tense and modality, number and the count/mass distinction, topic/focus articulation, particles, and the nature of pronominal reference.
