Standard theories of scope are semantically blind. They employ a single logicosyntactic rule of scope assignment (quantifying in, Quantifier Raising, storage, or type change, etc.) which roughly speaking “prefixes” an expression a to a domain D and thereby assigns scope to it over D, irrespective of what α means, and irrespective of what operator β may occur in D: (1) The semantically blind rule of scope assignment: $$ \alpha \left[ {_D \ldots \beta \ldots } \right] \Rightarrow \alpha… Expand
