Description
In this squib we argue that the ambiguity of floating numeral quantifiers (henceforth, an FQ) in Japanese with respect to a presuppositional and a nonpresuppositional reading is determined by a syntactic factor. We also show that the present analysis is favored over a pragmatic analysis which claims that the nonpresuppositional reading is the only reading for FQs and that the presuppositional reading results from a pragmatic inference.
