CLASP seminar with Asad Sayeed, "The event as limit in scope ambiguity resolution"

Research profile seminar

CLASP seminar with Asad Sayeed, "The event as limit in scope ambiguity resolution".

In this talk, I outline a research question in the formalization of quantifier scope ambiguity: how such formalizations can be reconciled with psycholinguistic experiments in the incremental processing context? I provide an overview of the history of experimental results in the processing of simple scope ambiguities such as "Every kid climbed a tree" (Kurtzmann and McDonald, 1993, Dwivedi and Gibson, 2017, inter alia) and "Each of the men carried some boxes" (Patson and Warren, 2010) and suggest ways in which the neo-Davidsonian event variable can be employed as a structural element that conditionally limits the domain of scope ambiguity.
