Title Without a trace: interpreting full copies
Date 2008-08
Description quantifier phrases that she describes in later research, and I explain how they combine with verbs. I then show how full copies of quantifier phrases and verbs can occupy different positions in the syntactic tree and that they can be interpreted in the semantic interface without requiring traces in order to resolve type mismatches. Last, I confirm that my proposal does not cause problems for scope interpretation. Using works of Fox, Takahashi, McCarthy, and Aoun and Li, I develop a model that allows the syntax to delete copies of moves quantifier phrases from interpretation and allows the semantic interface to interpret the remaining quantifier phrases for scope relation, and I formalize a quantifier phrases that she describes in later research, and I explain how they combine with verbs.
