The complex Case and agreement systems of both languages are fully accounted for, and it is shown that the proposed structures further explain other structure-sensitive phenomena (minimal scope options, obviation, and A′-control).

In other words, weak NPIs occur only in contexts in which taking narrow scope matters for interpretation. Thus one part of the explanation for the ubiquity and robust stability of negative polarity is that it signals scope by: 2.

AbstractPolarity sensitivity has been an established key topic of linguistic research for more than half a century.

The study of polarity phenomena can be extremely revealing about the internal structure of a language, as they usually involve an interaction at the interface between syntax, semantics and pragmatics.

In the past, most attention was paid to negative polarity : Mingya Liu, Gianina Iordăchioaia. Polarity sensitivity has been an established key topic of linguistic research for more than half a century. The study of polarity phenomena can be extremely revealing about the internal structure.

This book draws on insights from cognitive/functional linguistics and formal semantics to argue that, on the contrary, the grammar of sensitivity is grounded in a very general human cognitive ability to form categories and draw inferences based on scalar alternatives, and in the ways this ability is deployed for rhetorical effects in ordinary interpersonal communication.

The phenomenon of polarity sensitivity has been an important source of evidence for theories about the mental architecture of grammar over the last fifty years, and to many the oddly dysfunctional sensitivities of polarity items have seemed to support a view of grammar as an encapsulated mental module fundamentally unrelated to other aspects of.

The principal goal is to attempt a solution to the so-called diversity problem,i.e. to the fact not all polarity items are licensed in the same environments, by motivating, on both syntactic and semantic grounds, a distinction between strong and weak polarity licensing. The proposal builds on a conjecture expressed in Ladusaw (, Author: Anastasia Giannakidou.
