Verification Strategies for Two Majority Quantifiers in Polish

  • Barbara Tomaszewicz

Abstract

We provide experimental evidence suggesting that the logical structure of linguistic expressions can directly influence aspects of nonlinguistic cognition. Specifically, we show that quantifier semantics provides a set of instructions to visual verification processes. Each of the two Polish majority quantifiers większość and najwięcej biases a distinct verification strategy that is used as a default under time pressure. Each canonical verification strategy overrides other alternative strategies for truth verification as proposed in Lidz et al. (2009).
