Exhaustification, but-Exceptives, and Any

  • I-Ta Chris Hsieh


This paper proposes an exhaustification-based  approach to the limited distribution of the but-exceptive a´ la Chierchia (2006, 2013) and shows that there is a total analogy between the weak NPI any and the but-exceptive.  The core of the proposal is that just like any, but triggers  a set of alternatives that is built on the subsets of the domain of quantification.
