Strategies of Quantification

In the history of work on cross‐linguistic variation in quantification, Salish languages have played a special role. This is largely due to the programmatic work of Eloise Jelinek (see in particular Jelinek 1995), who identified Northern Straits Salish as a language that entirely lacked D‐type quantifiers. Instead, Jelinek claimed that Northern Straits had only A‐type quantification, in which an adverbial quantifier unselectively binds any appropriate variable in its scope. The purpose of the current chapter is twofold: to provide an update on research into D‐type quantification, and to explore A‐type quantification in more detail. Data will be drawn mainly from the Northern Interior Salish language Lillooet (a.k.a. St’at’imcets), supplemented where available with data from Central Salish languages, including Northern Straits Salish and its neighbour and close relative Halkomelem.

Keywords:   Salish, Lillooet, Halkomelem, Northern Straits Salish, A‐type quantification, universal quantifiers, quantifier floating, auxiliaries, adverbs
