Titre: On the Inverse Trace Conversion and maximal informativeness analysis of Japanese internally-headed relative clauses: A reply to Erlewine and Gould 2016

Annee: 2017

typeOuvrage: article


Genre: Specialité

Resume_editeur: In this response to Erlewine & Gould 2016, we show that an account of internally-headed relative clauses using Inverse Trace Conversion and the maximal informativeness semantics for definites of von Fintel et al. 2014 does not derive the observed interpretations when the internal head is quantified by certain downward entailing quantifiers and no interpretation at all for non-monotonic and some upward entailing quantifiers. We then argue that the cases that Erlewine & Gould(2016) claim to be a newly identified interpretation of internally-headed relatives are actually headless relatives.
