Modeling the exhaustivity inference of clefts: evidence from Ga (Kwa)

  • Agata Renans

Abstract

Cross-linguistically, cleft structures are observed to give rise to an exhaustivity inference modeled in various ways. This paper argues based on the new data from Ga (Kwa) collected in Ghana that a distinction into collective and distributive predicates is an important factor interacting with the exhaustive interpretation of clefts.
