Truth and typicality in the interpretation of quantifiers

Abstract

The standard view in natural language semantics is that quantifiers denote relations between sets. Psychological research, however, has shown that quantified statements often convey finer-grained information that is not encoded in their set-theoretic definitions. We investigate the relationship between these meaning aspects on the basis of two experiments.
