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 Polarity sensitivity as inherent scope relations book 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. Any as Inherently Modal Dayal, The Generic Book. Kratzer, A. The Semantics and Pragmatics of Polarity Items. Krifka, M. Kroch, A. Polarity Sensitivity as Inherent Scope Relations.

However, in previous theories, the narrow scope requirement is always in addition to some other independent condition on the licensing context, such as downward entail-ment, non-veridicality, strengthening, etc.

A polarity item that appears in affirmative (positive) contexts is called a positive polarity item (PPI), and one that appears in negative contexts is a negative polarity item (NPI) (redundantly: (negative) NPI item).

AbstractThis paper discusses a class of so-called “marked” or “modal” indefinites in Romance, (e.g., Romanian un NP oarecare, Italian un NP qualunque, French quelque N), which have been shown to display the locality, shielding and rescuing effects familiar from the study of positive polarity items (PPIs) like someone (e.g., Săvescu-CiucivaraOarecare indefinites are not just Author: Anamaria Fălăuș.

Negative polarity items such as German “jemals” (ever) must occur in the scope of appropriate licensing conditions (in the present investigation always constituent negation), where scope is defined in terms of a c-command relation.

If these syntactic and semantic constraints are Cited by:   The Meaning of Free Choice The Meaning of Free Choice Giannakidou, Anastasia In this paper, I discuss the distribution and interpretation of free choice items (FCIs) in Greek, a language exhibiting a lexical paradigm of such items distinct from that of negative polarity items.

Greek differs in this respect from English, which uniformly employs any. Anastasia Giannakidou () argues that various polarity phenomena observed in language are manifestations of the dependency of polarity items to the (non)veridicality of the context of appearance.

The (non)veridical dependency may be positive (licensing), or negative (anti-licensing), and arises from the sensitivity semantics of polarity items.A negative polarity item is a word (or expression) used only in non-positive 's a misnomer because they're not restricted to negative environments, but occur also in questions and hypotheticals.
