  • Embedded Scalars, Preferred Readings and Prosody: An Experimental Revisit
    • Authors: Franke M; Schlotterbeck F, Augurzky P.
      Abstract: AbstractThe scalar item some is widely assumed to receive a meaning enrichment to some but not all if it occurs in matrix position. The question under which circumstances this enrichment can occur in certain embedded positions plays an important role in deciding how to delineate semantics and pragmatics. We present new experimental data that bear on this theoretical issue. In distinction to previous experimental approaches, we presented sentence material auditorily in order to explicitly control prosodic markedness of the scalar item. Moreover, our experiment sheds light on the relative preferences or salience of candidate readings. The presented data turn out to be unexpected under a traditional Gricean view, but also challenge the idea of disambiguation by logical strength in grammaticalist approaches.

  • On the Role of Alternatives in the Acquisition of Simple and Complex
           Disjunctions in French and Japanese
    • Authors: Tieu LL; Yatsushiro KK, Cremers AA, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractWhen interpreting disjunctive sentences of the form ‘A or B’, young children have been reported to differ from adults in two ways. First, children have been reported to interpret disjunction inclusively rather than exclusively, accepting ‘A or B’ in contexts in which both A and B are true (Chierchia et al. 2001; Gualmini et al. 2001). Second, some children have been reported to interpret disjunction conjunctively, rejecting ‘A or B’ in contexts in which only one of the disjuncts is true (Paris 1973; Braine & Rumain 1981; Chierchia et al. 2004; Singh et al. 2015). In this article, we extend the investigation of children's interpretation of disjunction to include both simple and complex forms of disjunction, in two typologically unrelated languages: French and Japanese. First, given that complex disjunctions have been argued to give rise to obligatory exclusivity inferences (Spector 2014), we investigated whether the obligatoriness of the inference would play a role in the acquisition of the exclusive interpretation. Second, using a paradigm that makes the use of disjunction felicitous, we aimed to establish whether the finding of conjunctive interpretations would be replicated for both simple and complex forms of disjunction, and in languages other than English. The main findings from our experiment are that both French- and Japanese-speaking children interpreted the simple and complex disjunctions either inclusively or conjunctively; in contrast, adults generally accessed exclusive readings of both disjunctions. We argue that our results lend further support to the proposal put forth in Singh et al. (2015), according to which the reason some children compute conjunctive meanings while adults compute exclusive meanings is that the two groups differ in their respective sets of alternatives for disjunction. Crucially, adults access conjunction as an alternative to disjunction, and compute exclusive interpretations; in contrast, children access only the individual disjuncts as alternatives, and therefore either interpret the disjunction literally or compute conjunctive inferences. More generally, our findings can be explained quite naturally within recent proposals according to which children differ from adults in the computation of scalar inferences because they are more restricted than adults in the set of scalar alternatives they can access (Barner et al. 2011; Tieu et al. 2015b, among others).

  • Training and Timing Local Scalar Enrichments under Global Pragmatic
    • Authors: Chemla E; Cummins C, Singh R.
      Abstract: AbstractElementary sentences containing the quantificational determiner some seem to be ambiguous between a ‘weak’ existential meaning ∃ and a ‘strengthened’ some but not all meaning ∃+. The strengthened meaning is commonly assumed to be the output of a general enrichment mechanism, call it G (for ‘global’), that applies to the weak meaning of the sentence: G(∃) = ∃+. The application of G has been shown to come with a processing cost (e.g. Bott & Noveck 2004). We used a self-paced reading task together with offline comprehension questions to investigate the interpretation of sentences containing some when embedded inside a disjunction, a position that G cannot access. Our findings suggest (i) that the strengthened meaning ∃+ is available in embedded positions, suggesting that a mechanism of local strengthening L must be available: L(∃) = ∃+, (ii) that local enrichment can be facilitated by global pragmatic pressures (Chierchia et al. 2008; Mayr & Romoli 2014), (iii) that subjects can be quickly trained to systematically prefer one of G or L to the other, (iv) that application of L, like the application of G, comes with a processing cost. We highlight consequences of our findings for debates about the characterization of enrichment mechanisms, focusing on the relation between G and L.

  • Presupposition Projection in Online Processing
    • Authors: Schwarz F; Tiemann S.
      Abstract: AbstractA central aspect of language comprehension is that hearers integrate incoming linguistic content both with the rest of the current sentence and the larger discourse context. Presuppositions crucially interact with both intra- and inter-sentential context in intricate ways, which makes their study especially useful in this regard. We present a series of experiments investigating the time-course of interpreting presuppositions in online comprehension and the impact that so-called presupposition projection has on this in cases where presuppositions appear in embedded environments. We find immediate delays in eye tracking reading times when the presupposition of German wieder (‘again’) is not supported by the context, but only for unembedded occurrences of wieder. Further evidence from a rating experiment and a stops-making-sense study supports our interpretation of this result to the effect that global presuppositions of embedded presupposition triggers are not immediately available in processing. A second reading time experiment explores the effects of embedding further by providing presuppositional support in different locations in contexts with a more complex structure involving conditionals. We find longer reading times when the support is more distant, measured in terms of the number of projection steps posited by Discourse Representation Theory (DRT). Altogether, the results suggest that presupposition projection is a cognitively effortful process, and are thus consistent with theoretical accounts that reflect this in terms of the complexity of the representations involved in the different types of contexts, while other accounts that are more neutral in this regard need to be supplemented by additional assumptions or alternative explanations for the observed effects. On the more general level of discourse processing models, these results suggest that there is even more structure relevant to cognitive processes at a level between the surface representation and the purely semantic level (e.g. the commonly assumed level of a text-base) than previously assumed.

  • Embedded Exhaustification: Evidence from Almost
    • Authors: Kilbourn-Ceron O.
      Abstract: AbstractRecent work in the domain of scalar implicatures argues for the existence of a grammatical device of covert exhaustification exh (Krifka 1995; Chierchia 2006; Fox 2007; Fox and Spector 2009; Chierchia et al. 2011; Sauerland 2012). This covert operator strengthens sentence meanings in a way similar to neo-Gricean quantity inferences, but is crucially different in that it can strengthen embedded propositions. Embedded exhaustification can interact with higher operators, and many arguments for exh rest on these effects. This article presents another argument for the presence of a covert exhaustification operator in the grammar from its interaction with the approximative modifier almost. Intuitively, almost α might be paraphrased as ‘close to but not quite α’. I motivate, and take as a starting point, a denotation for almost which derives both its proximal (‘close to’) inference and its negative (‘not quite’) inference as entailments (Horn 2002, 2005, 2011; Penka 2006). I present a new instance of a puzzle noted in Nouwen (2006) that poses a challenge to such an analysis: in certain environments, almost α can have an interpretation in which it seems that the negative inference has disappeared, and instead a monotonic inference arises (i.e. α is inferred rather than negated). I revisit and spell out the previously suggested solution (Horn 2005; Penka 2006; Spector 2015) that almost may take logical scope higher than other operators which c-command its surface position. The analysis of the novel case that I present assumes this scopal mobility, but crucially also relies on covert exhaustification. Under this proposal, the negative inference does not actually disappear, but is interpreted in a position where its contribution is obscured.

  • Evidentiality, Learning Events and Spatiotemporal Distance: The View from
    • Authors: Koev T.
      Abstract: AbstractThe grammatical category of evidentiality is traditionally conceived as marking the ‘information source’ for the claim described by the sentence (see e.g. Anderson 1986; Willett 1988; Aikhenvald 2004). This article defends the view that evidentiality need not be a semantic primitive but can rather be pragmatically derived from the spatiotemporal distance between the event described by the sentence and the ‘learning event’, that is the event of the speaker acquiring the relevant evidence for her claim. While the empirical focus is on the Bulgarian evidential -l, this work adds to similar proposals about evidential markers in typologically unrelated languages (see Nikolaeva 1999; Fleck 2007; Speas 2010; Kalsang et al. 2013; Lee 2013). The view of evidentiality as a spatiotemporal distance undermines the claim that evidential sentences in Bulgarian have modal force (pace Izvorski 1997; Smirnova 2013) and correctly predicts that speakers are typically committed to the core proposition described by evidential sentences. The article also discusses the not-at-issue discourse status and projection behavior of the evidential implication, suggesting that evidential meanings belong to the broader class of ‘conventional implicatures’, in the sense of Potts (2005). The formal proposal, couched in an update semantics, successfully captures not only the meaning of the evidential marker but also the discourse properties of evidential sentences in Bulgarian.
