Abstract:

This book deals with the interpretation of adverbially quantified sentences
containing definite DPs and Free Relatives (FR) Thereby, it concentrates on
the origins of Quantificational Variability Effects (QVEs), i.e. readings
according to which the respective quantificational adverb seems to quantify
over the individuals denoted by the respective DP/FR.

QVEs are usually discussed only in connection with singular indefinites and
bare plurals. This book therefore provides the first comprehensive account
of QVEs with definite DPs and Free Relatives (while also discussing
singular indefinites and bare plurals). Presenting new empirical
observations and arguments for the assumption that Q-adverbs quantify over
situations exclusively, it is also an important contribution to the
theoretical debate concerning the quantificational domain of Q-adverbs.

It is of interest to linguists working in formal semantics and the
syntax-semantics interface as well as to philosophers of language who are
interested in adverbial quantification and situation semantics.
Furthermore, it offers an introduction to the core issues of situation
semantics and adverbial quantification and is therefore accessible to
graduate students interested in these topics.
