Quantifiers IV 208
Quantifier/Linguistics/Lewis: quantifier phrase: E.g. "some pigs grunt" - a quantifier is not a name - therefore: if a quantifier phrase QP goes together with an S/N, it must be, therefore, an S/(S/N). - S/N: Verbal phrase, takes a name N to form a sentence S - quantifier phrases are always replaceable by a name.
Sw I 82
Plural quantifier/Lewis/Black: e.g. "some" is problematic in everyday language - plural quantifier: replaces singular constructions - "are few" is then a property. - plural quantifier can simulate quantification: by quantification in the plural, about couples.
