This paper gives an analysis explaining various cases where the scope of two logical operators is non-permutable in a sentence. The explanation depends on a theory of derivational economy couched in the synchronous tree adjoining grammar framework. Locality restrictions made using the STAG formalism allow us to limit the computational complexity of using… (More)
This paper provides an account for inverse scope restrictions with nominal quantifiers using synchronous tree adjoining grammar. It aims to provide an alternative account to Beghelli & Stowell's (1997) work on similar data.
