    The goal of this short paper is to show that esthetic adjectives—exemplified by “beautiful” and “elegant”—do not pattern stably on a range of linguistic diagnostics that have been used to taxonomize the gradability properties ...

  • Wohlmuth, Kata (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2019-06-19)
    Mereological models are often used to account for distributive reference, which arises when the denotation of a linguistic expression holds of certain parts of the plurality to which it is applied. It is general praxis in ...
  • McNally, Louise, 1965- (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Grup de Gramàtica TeòricaInstitut Interuniversitari de Filologia Valenciana, 2004)
    In this paper, I argue that bare plural noun phrases in Spanish unambiguously denote properties of individuals. I begin by using evidence from their incompatibility with kind-level predicates to show that Spanish bare ...

    This paper presents an analysis of bare nominals unmarked for number (BNs) occurring in object position in Spanish and Catalan, on which the BN is a syntactic complement to the verb, but not a semantic argument. After ...

  • McNally, Louise, 1965- (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, 1999)
    Focusing on the case of deverbal gradable adjectives such as acquainted, we show that the selective behavior of degree modifiers such as very and well provides an important prove on the semantic typology of adjectives. ...

    Though the term “existential sentence” goes back at least as far as Jespersen (1924, 155) and is used in descriptions of many languages to refer to a designated construction, it is difficult to identify exactly what these ...

    Adjectival modification, particularly by expressions that have been treated as higher-order modifiers in the formal semantics tradition, raises interesting challenges for semantic composition in distributional semantic ...
