We have already seen two types of quantifiers in the previous lecture: The (for-all or universal) quantifier, and. Chapter Methods of Proof for Quantifiers § Valid quantifier steps The two simplest rules are the elimination rule for the universal quantifier and the introduction rule for the existential quantifier. Universal elimination This rule is sometimes called universal instantiation. Given a universal generalization (an ∀. 7. More intuitions concerning quantifiers 8. Further directions §1. A logico-linguistic perspective. The importance of the logical 'generalized quantifiers' (Mostowski []) for the semantics of natural language was brought out clearly in Barwise & Cooper [].

Chapter Multiple Quantifiers § Multiple uses of a single quantifier We begin by considering sentences in which there is more than one quantifier of the same “quantity”—i.e., sentences with two or more existential quantifiers, and sentences with two or more universal quantifiers. Articles, determiners, and quantifiers are those little words that precede and modify nouns: the teacher, a college, a bit of honey, that person, those people, whatever purpose, either way, your choice.

Quantifiers in Language and Logic (QLL) is a major contribution to natural language semantics, specifically to quantification. It integrates the extensive recent work on quantifiers in logic and linguistics. It also presents new observations and results. QLL should help linguists understand the mathematical generalizations we can make about natural language quantification, and it should.
