Part-Whole-Modifiers and the *-Operator

  • Moritz Igel

Abstract

In this paper, I present an analysis of German ‘ganz’ ( whole), which I see as evidence for the existence of the plural operator in the syntax as well as its ability to enter into scope relationships with other operators at LF. I also elaborate on more general ideas of ‘wholeness’ in natural language.
