Abstract

In the next three chapters I shall explore the idea that natural language quantifiers are usually evaluated with respect to contextually supplied domains — often very small domains. I shall apply this idea to a number of problems in the semantics of refernce, and wil begin by looking at some rather obvious facts about the way we use quantifiers.
