    "Quantification forms a significant aspect of cross-linguistic research into both sentence structure and meaning. This book surveys research in quantification starting with the foundational work in the s. It paints a vivid picture of generalized quantifiers and Boolean semantics. After introducing such concepts as truth conditions and compositionality, the book presents a basic symbolic logic with negation, conjunction, and generalized quantifiers, to serve as the basis for translation throughout the book.

    These include semantic classes of quantifiers (generalized existential, generalized universal, proportional, partitive), syntactically complex quantifiers (intensive modification, Boolean compounding, exception phrases) and several others such as quantifier scope ambiguities, quantifier float, and binary quantifiers. An examination of the role of partial information - with illustrations drawn from different branches of Intensional Logic - and various influences stemming from current theories of the semantics of natural language, involving generalized quantifiers.

For example, one of the types of the phrase every bookenables it to apply to a tran-sitive verb and return an intransitive verb phrase. With a simple example.

Quantifiers in Action: Generalized Quantification in Query, Logical and Natural Languages is the result of several years of research funded by NSF through a CAREER Award. It is designed for practitioners and researchers that work within the database management field.

This volume is also suitable for graduate-level students in computer by: 3. To a large extent, the new research has been inspired by Jon Barwise and Robin Cooper's path-breaking article "Generalized Quantifiers and Natural Language" from A concrete sign of this development was the workshop on this topic at Lund University, May, which was organized by Robin Cooper, Elisabet Engdahl, and the present editor.

Introduction. Some fifteen years ago, research on generalized quantifiers was con­ sidered to be a branch of mathematical logic, mainly carried out by mathematicians. Since then an increasing number of linguists and philosophers have become interested in exploring the relevance of Generalized Quantifiers book quantifiers for natural language as shown by the bibliography compiled for this volume.

This professional book also includes several extensions, for use with documents employing question and answer techniques. Quantifiers in Action: Generalized Quantification in Query, Logical and Natural Languages is the result of several years of research funded by NSF through a CAREER Award.

Generalized quantifiers have been standard tools in natural language semantics since at least the mid‐s. This chapter presents some highlights of the use of generalized quantifiers in semantics, from the beginning up to the present day. It emphasizes the power of these model‐theoretic tools in the study of real languages.

Introduction This book comprises revised full versions of lectures given during the 9th European Summer School in Logic, Languages, and Information, ESSLLI'97, held in Aix-en-Provence, France, in August The six lectures presented introduce the reader to the state of the art in the area of generalized quantifiers and computation.

Quantifiers are useful Everyone knows everyone here. Henk Reinhard Tikitu. In the following discussion of the semantics of NP as generalized quantifier, we will use examples where the NP is the subject; but the results apply to all uses of NP, whether the NP is acting as a function, or as an argument of some other function, or is quantified in.

In this approach, obligatory narrow scope of comparative quantifiers in object position is a consequence. The volume includes a wide-ranging survey of logical methods which are useful in investigations into generalized quantifiers.

Abstract The Generalized Quantifier Theory, hencefore “GQT”, initiated with Barwise and Cooper () has elicited promising new lines of research and theorizing in semantics, in particular by the.

GENERALIZED QUANTIFIERS: LOGIC AND LANGUAGE 87 Let E be a non-empty set, the universe, of a model M and Q E any set of subsets of E (Q E power(E)).Then Q E is a type 1 GQ whose meaning is given by: Q E (A) A QE The same quantifier can be written as variable-binding operator (where M |= is the usual satisfaction relation between a model and a formula, and [[ (x)]].

On the Learnability of Quantifiers* (Update of Chapter 19) Robin Clark, in Handbook of Logic and Language (Second Edition), Quantifiers are used and understood by finite computational agents. The computational approach to quantifiers promises to advance our understanding of quantifiers both within theoretical computer science—where the descriptive complexity of quantifiers can tell us.
