On quantification over questions: A case study of exhaustification in Japanese

  • Yurie Hara

Abstract

This paper supports the idea that the exceptive meaning denoted by the Japanese exhaustive particle dake is a conventional implicature, and shows that the Contrastive-marked (wa-marked) element takes scope higher than the proposition. I also provide an explanation for the unavailability of dake-wa in wh-questions using Krifka’s (2001b) non-Boolean algebra of Speech Acts.
