The interpretation of the German additive particle auch ('too, also') in quantificational contexts
Madeleine Butschety, 2022, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: This article discusses an unexpected interpretation that arises for the German additive particle auch (‘too, also’) in quantificational contexts. It will be proposed that what auch conveys in such contexts is a superset-to-subset relation between two of its arguments. This rather unusual meaning and its alternation with the classical additive meaning will be argued to be tied to specific syntactic constructions in which the particle occurs. The main purpose of this article is to present novel data and make a tentative suggestion on how the correspondence between syntactic structure and semantic interpretation could be explained.
Keywords: additive particle, quantification, appositive, superset-to-subset relation, German, inclusion, presupposition, anaphora
