Double access


  • Corien Bary
  • Daniel Altshuler


In light of counterexamples against Abusch’s analysis of double access sentences we propose a modification that abandons her Upper Limit Constraint (ULC). We then show that rather than being an ad hoc solution, this modification, in fact, fits in neatly with the semantics of the present tense proposed by Altshuler and Schwarzschild. We end the paper by exploring some of the consequences of our modification and discussing some outstanding issues.
