Of course, languages that do not have any other noun phrases than pronouns might still have constituents that can be taken to denote type ‹1› quantifiers. But however a natural language may use type ‹1› quantification, if it does at all, this chapter claims that the linguistically important type is ‹1, 1›.

    Quantification in natural language occurs whenever a predicate is applied to one or more sets of individual objects, as in (4) when “gave” is viewed as a 3-place predicate: (4) Santa gave the children a present. A singular noun phrase like “a present” might seem to refer to a single object, but this sentence. The study of quantification in natural language has made remarkable progress. Quantification in natural language has been investigated extensively by philosophers, logicians, and linguists. The result has been an elegant and far-reaching theory. This article presents a survey of some of the important components of this theory. The first section presents the core of the theory of generalized.

    The main goal of this class is to provide a brief introduction to the phenomenon of quantification in natural language and its analysis within Generalized Quantifier (GQ) theory. The particular focus will be on the basic semantic characteristics of quantificational expressions and their realizations across syntactic domains.
