A Crosslinguistic Analysis of Most
Carmen Dobrovie-Sorin and Ion Giurgea
Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics
This book investigates the syntax and semantics of proportional most and other majority quantifiers across a wide range of languages. The findings have implications for the study of a variety of crucial issues in linguistic theory, including number marking, partitivity, kind reference, and (in)definiteness marking.
