What is Amazement all about?

  • Magdalena Schwager


This paper deals with DPs embedded in expletive constructions with emotive adjectives that are interpreted like wh-exclamatives. This class of DPs seems to be constrained to degree and kind referring ones. I focus on the problem of a uniform semantics for the construction given that monotonicity entailments arise for the first but not for the latter.
