This chapter paints a general picture of the specific research background against which the papers in this volume were developed. Rather than focusing on specific issues relating to the chapters themselves we address some general issues in semantics, syntax, and morphology and summarize some general ideas in these areas, such as the structure of the clausal periphery and scope assignment, semantic parametrization and cross‐linguistic issues in semantics, etc. These are aspects of the research context instrumental, to varying degrees, in the development of the following chapters.

Keywords:   quantifiers, quantification, indefinites, plural, syntax, semantics, syntax–semantics interface, polarity sensitivity, free choice, focus, distributivity, scope
