‘Than’ = ‘More’ + Exhaustivity: Evidence from Circassian

P. 75-82.
Bylinina L., Lander Yu.

This paper discusses new facts on comparative constructions in Circassian languages that contribute to a theoretical debate about the semantics of comparatives. We argue that Circassian comparatives provide the direct evidence for the combination of two recent insights into comparative semantics: the theory of two loci of degree quanti cation in such constructions and theories postulating exhaustivity or maximisation at the edge of the standard clause.
