Quantification in Kusunda

Mark Donohue, Bhojraj Gautam

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    Quantification in Kusunda can be generally described as involving radical underspecification. Many syntactic traits of quantification are shared in outline with other kinds of modification in the phrase and in the clause, and the level of underspecification is also shared with other subsystems of the language. Quantification in Kusunda, then, can be described as not showing significant variance from the general architecture of the language, and not appearing to tightly delimit the range of possibilities for identification or enumeration of arguments or events.
