Working paper

Strength and similarity of scalar alternatives

MIT Working Papers in Linguistics. MITWPL. MIT (Cambridge, USA), 2012
The paper presents experimental evidence that generation of scalar inferences is dependent on the three following factors: informativity distance and semantic distance between the items of the very same scale as well as the presence of the maximally informative expression on a scale.
