Quantiiers loaded with presuppositions give rise to partiality by introducing truth value gaps (if there are no A, and the quantiier all + carries an existence presupposi-tion, then all + A are B will lack a truth value). The study of quantiiers in contexts of incomplete information involves a quite diierent kind of partial-ity. This paper investigates the behaviour of binary quantiiers in settings of incomplete… Expand
