Strength and similarity of scalar alternatives
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.

We present experimental evidence showing that there is considerable variation between the rates at which scalar expressions from different lexical scales give rise to upper-bounded construals. We investigated two factors that might explain the variation between scalar expressions: first, the availability of the lexical scales, which we measured on the basis of association strength, grammatical ...

The paper considers the senses of the Russian adjective poslednij ‘last’. Its polysemy is analyzed as deriving from a certain core semantic structure that is common to all its meanings. The core structure has two semantic valencies – of a sequence and of a sequence element. Modifications of the core structure, including additional valencies (point ...

Following a recent discussion in Fox and Spector 2018, this paper provides an argument for a particular view of the theory of scalar implicatures and exhaustification where exhaustification is only allowed if it alters the overall sentence meaning without weakening it. I show that this idea is helpful to make sense of the so-called dependent plural imterpreta tions, addressed ...

The correct (prescriptive) or incorrect usage of grammatical constructions is regulated by the tradition of codification. The standardizing practice is based on the analysis of reference texts and the logic of the language’s grammatical system. Therefore, the same phenomena can be interpreted as corresponding to or deviating from the norm, depending on the corpus of sources taken as the ...

The paper discusses the results of a series of experimental studies on scalar inferences, which is part of linguistic pragmatics. The findings argue for intrascalar and interscalar diversity of scalar inferences. Moreover, it shows that adjectival scalar inferences are derived at a relatively low rate. ...

The objective of this paper is to determine what semantic components in the meaning of a word facilitate its lexicalization as prosodically marked and aid its focalization in an utterance. The paper demonstrates that prosodic and communicative properties of a word correlate with its semantic properties. In particular, a case study of different senses of ...

Veridicality and the cause-effect relation in Russian esli- and raz-conditionals: experimenting with conditional perfection and logical entailment
, Linguistics Vanguard 2022 Vol. 8 No. s4 P. 401-412
This paper experimentally investigates the role of veridicality and the cause-effect relation in the derivation of (i) Conditional Perfection and (ii) logical entailment in Russian esli-conditionals and raz-conditionals. It provides further evidence that Conditional Perfection is a structurally defined phenomenon. Moreover, it presents a cross-linguistic and intra-linguistic variation in conditional connectives used in indicative and ...

Previous clinical research has shown a positive effect of instrumentality on verb retrieval in individuals with aphasia. Performance on instrumental verbs incorporating an obligatory tool into their conceptual representation (e.g., to cut) is more accurate compared to non-instrumental verbs (e.g., to tear), possibly due to more specific conceptual representations of instrumental verbs. Seeking the neural correlates of ...

This paper presents experimental evidence for overspecification of small cardinalities in refer-ence production. The idea is that when presented with a small set of unique objects (2, 3 or 4), the speaker includes a small cardinality while describing given objects, although it is overin-formative for the hearer (e.g., “three stars”). On the contrary, when presented ...

Lost for emotion words: What motor and limbic brain activity reveals about autism and semantic theory.
, , et al., Neuroimage 2015 Vol. 104 P. 413-422
Autism spectrum conditions (ASC) are characterised by deficits in understanding and expressing emotions and are frequently accompanied by alexithymia, a difficulty in understanding and expressing emotion words. Words are differentially represented in the brain according to their semantic category and these difficulties in ASC predict reduced activation to emotion-related words in limbic structures crucial for ...

This paper focuses on semantics and syntax of two attributivizers in Kazym Khanty. Both of the attributivizers have proprietive semantics and attach to a small nominal rather than a full DP. Proprietives are not completely interchangeable, therefore the difference between them is also explored in this paper. Moreover, we are going to show that both ...
