Syntax of Scope takes up the issue of relative operator scope in generative grammarand offers a comparative study of quantifiers and interrogative wh-operators. The authors argue thatthe interaction of these operators is constrained by two interpretive principles: a Minimum BindingRequirement and a Scope Principle. These principles are shown to provide a unified account for thecross-linguistic similarities and variations in the interaction of operators. The authors present acomprehensive, contrastive study of operators in English and Mandarin Chinese and extend theirinvestigation to Japanese in the last chapter.Joseph Aoun is Professor of Linguistics in theDepartment of Linguistics and Yen-hui Audrey Li is Associate Professor of Linguistics in theDepartment of Linguistics and the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, both at theUniversity of Southern California.Syntax of Scope takes up the issue of relative operator scope in generative grammarand offers a comparative study of quantifiers and interrogative wh-operators.
