A scope freezing effect with negated quantifier phrases

Christopher Collins

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    I document a scope freezing effect found with negated quantifier phrases (distinct from the scope freezing effect discussed in Collins (Nat Lang Semant 24: 291–303, 2016a)). In a sentence with a negated quantifier phrase of the form [NEG DP1], no quantifier phrase DP2 can take scope between NEG and DP1. I show how this scope freezing effect can be explained in terms of the analysis of negated quantifier phrases given in Collins and Postal (Classical NEG raising, MIT Press, Cambridge, 2014) and Collins (2016a).
