This chapter argues that the properties of the Quantity Phrase (#P) in conjunction with the properties of DP are responsible for derivation of strong vs. weak readings for quantifiers, cardinals, and indefinites. In lieu of an operation of type-shifting, the key element in deriving distinct types involves the assignment of range by the same determiner to #, the value heading #P, and to d, the value heading DP.

Keywords:   Quantity Phrase, quantifiers, cardinals, indefinites, indefinites, determiners
