Many and Diverse Cases: Q-adjectives and Conjunction

  • Stephanie Solt


This paper analyzes the conjunction of the ‘adjectives of quantity’ many and few with ordinary gradable adjectives. It is shown that the facts surrounding this construction support an analysis of adjectives of quantity as ‘degree predicates’: predicates of intervals on the scale of cardinality. It is further shown that gradable adjectives also have a secondary interpretation as degree predicates.
