Adjectives of veracity as vagueness regulators

  • Melania S. Masià

Abstract

This paper discusses adjectives of veracity in Spanish (verdadero ‘true’ or auténtico ‘authentic’), which are intensifiers in prenominal position. I will argue that AVs are sensitive to the vagueness of the predicate and propose an analysis of AVs as domain restrictors that builds on Sassoon (2013).
