A Semantic Analysis of the Korean Plural Marker 'Tul'
AbstractI argue that Extrinsic Plural Marker tul in Korean has two semantic components, distributivity and maximality, that operate on the predicate that tul attaches to. In this paper, the universal quantificational force associated with the semantic effects of EPM-tul will be accounted for, relying on a distributivity operator and a focussensitive operator. The good-fitting requirement on the Cover variable of the distributivity operator explains the maximizing effect of the predicate marked with tul while the focus-sensitive operator captures the fact that different positions of EPM-tul generate different distributive relations.
