Aspects of Noun Phrase Structure in Arabic

This project deals broadly with problems in the analysis of the way in which quantificational material is integrated with non-quantificational material in noun phrases in natural language. It studies these interactions with particular reference to the behavior of the comparative and superlative and quantificational adjectives (‘much/little’), and with particular reference to Arabic, which has cross-linguistically rare properties that shed new light on the these issues.
