ABSTRACT

Chapter 5 examines the factors that help disambiguating between the three interpretations of indefinites proposed in Chap. 4. Some of these factors are DP-internal properties, e.g., the lexical properties of determiners or the internal structure of indefinite DPs, others are contextual, e.g., syntactic position and information structure. It is shown that whereas certain indefinites, in particular singular indefinites and cardinal indefinites, are ambiguous between a weak and a strong reading, other indefinites can be only weak or only strong. The difference between non quantificational strong and quantificational strong indefinites, on the other hand, is not a matter of ambiguity but rather a matter of indeterminacy, the choice between the two options being determined by the context: only indefinites in Topic positions, as well as indefinites in the subject position of contrastive predicates can be assigned a quantificational representation.
