Explaining quantifier restriction: Reply to Ben-Yami

Abstract [en]

This is a reply to H. Ben-Yami, 'Generalized quantifiers, and beyond' (this journal,2009), where he argues that standard GQ theory does not explain why natural language quantifiers have a restricted domain of quantification. I argue, on the other hand, that although GQ theory gives no deep explanation of this fact, it does give a sort of explanation, whereas Ben-Yami's suggested alternative is no improvement.
