Ellipsis and Quantiication: a Substitutional Approach

  title={Ellipsis and Quantiication: a Substitutional Approach},
  author={Richard Crouch},
The paper describes a substitutional approach to ellipsis resolution giving comparable results to (Dalrymple et al., 1991), but without the need for order-sensitive in-terleaving of quantiier scoping and ellip-sis resolution. It is argued that the order-independence results from viewing semantic interpretation as building a description of a semantic composition, instead of the more common view of interpretation as actually performing the composition.
