We use the type system and our treatment of generalized quantifiers in natural language to construct a type-theoretic approach to pronominal anaphora and ellipsis.
possessive quantifiers also try to find the longest match.
Our findings are consistent with a large-scale neural network centered in frontal and parietal cortex that supports comprehension of generalized quantifiers.
This account correctly predicts that plural agreement is impossible with conjuncts containing quantifiers, since a plural pro cannot appear in them.
One can formalize this by using restricted quantifiers, which incorporate a restriction on the domain over which the variable in question ranges.
Nor was there any serious problem about most of the generalized quantifiers proposed at the time.
We discussed in Part 1 how nested quantifiers like this could take an exponentially long time to execute if there was no match possible.
Such results show the ability of the whole model to map visual scenes of objects into vague linguistic quantifiers.
In order to find all the negative quantifiers, therefore, we need to find two different structures.
For then we should expect that, like other quantifiers, it could take wide or narrow scope relative to ' Michelle believes ' .
Quine famously claimed that the use of higher-order quantifiers commits to sets, irrespective of the intended subject matter of the theory.
For then we should expect that, like other quantifiers, it could take wide or narrow scope relative to ' Michelle believes '.
The following standard quantifiers are recognized: * Match 0 or more times + Match 1 or more times?
