Typology of Quantification

On Quantifiers and Quantification in Finnish and Languages Spoken in the Central Volga–Kama Region

University of Helsinki

The main goal of the international project “Typology of quantification: On quantifiers and quantification in Finnish and languages spoken in the Central Volga–Kama Region” has been to investigate the types of lexical quantifiers in noun and adverbial phrases and syntactic and semantic constraints at the phrase level based on or caused by quantification. A secondary goal has been to prepare material which can be used in investigating quantification in these languages. The parallel data base prepared during the project consists of examples of lexical quantifiers in various syntactic contexts. The sample sentences are glossed morphologically and translated into English. Typology of lexical quantifiers forms the framework for the project. More detailed descriptions of syntax and semantics of lexical quantifiers of Finnish, Russian, Udmurt, Erzya, Tatar and Chuvash are provided in the articles and material on these languages. It will be shown that some basic syntactic and semantic properties characterizing quantification are central to developing a typology of quantifiers and quantification.

Keywords: lexical quantifiers, quantification, semantics, syntax, typology, Central Volga–Kama Region, Russian, Finnish, Erzya, Udmurt, Tatar, Chuvash, parallel data base.
