A Study of Quantifier Scope Ambiguity in English
Abstract
The purpose of this thesis is to analyze a plausible interpretation theory on the quantifier scope ambiguity phenomenon between complex quantified noun phrases(QNP) in a single sentence. May(1977, 1985) treats quantifier raising(QR) within the theory of government binding(GB) while their syntactic representations are not identical with their semantic representations in logical form(LF). To interpret the ambiguity of quantifier scope with QR, May let quantificational phrases adjoined to IP(VP) and moved to non- argument position with empty category principle(ECP) on GB theory. However, the distinct chains formed by feature-checking motivation based on the minimalist program give clear ways of interpretation on the scope ambiguity without recourse to the rule of QR. The movement of quantifiers and their scope ambiguity are investigated with theories from GB to minimalist program. Fox(2000) interprets a subject QNP and an object QNP in one sentence by applying scope economy principles, when the object cross the subject and has a distinct semantic interpretation. Bruening(1999, 2001) explains that once ν has [quant] feature it has an feature agreement and attracts with any objects, then it could attract both two objects to multiple spec positions with shortest move by keeping their origin hierarchical order. Antecedent contained deletion(ACD) gives a support to QR. In the ACD sentence, VP of main clause is copied to fill the VP of subordinate clause, then copied VP has an empty VP constantly. The empty VP is moved to out of the area of copy before the copy happens. QR leads properly filled the VP of a subordinate clause. The scope ambiguity of wh/QNP is explained with Williams(1998)'s Q- superiority condition. The ambiguity of wh-word and QNP happens when QNP c-commands wh-word including its traces. However, the wh/QNP sentence has a narrower interpretation scope, a functional interpretation scope, and a pair-list interpretation because two constituents interact and the wh-word has grammatical features. There is a 'weak crossover' configurations which pronouns cannot have a 'bound-variable' interpretation after certain kinds of wh-movement. However, we would try to force a bound-variable interpretation by using his/her, the 'inclusive language' test also gets the same results as it did with wh- movement what we see is quantifiers patterning with wh-words in the form of QR at LF. It seems not only that quantifiers semantically function as operators, but also that the operator-variable structure of quantifiers is syntactically represented. Quantificational feature [quant] is proposed by Chomsky(1995: 377). It is interpretable and its movement is triggered by an 'optional affix feature' in LF. To integrate [quant] into the present framework, 'optional affix feature' may be the QU-feature(probe), which triggers movement of quantifiers that bear [quant](goal). Relative scope ambiguity relations without QR could be supported by this kind of feature-checking approach to the scope ambiguity between quantifiers in the minimalist theory. The structural-analysis has been derived economically by reflecting semantic character of the quantifier scope to a syntactic structure. A further study on quantifier scope analysis should be continued to apply a syntactic analysis model based on GB theory to systematic semantic features.
