Quantification is a topic which brings together linguistics, logic, and philosophy. Quantifiers are the essential tools with which, in language or logic, we refer to quantity of things or amount of stuff. In English they include such expressions as no, some, all, both, many. Peters and Westerstahl present the definitive interdisciplinary exploration of how they work - their syntax, semantics, and inferential role.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition This is a high-quality, informative, and authoritative study, offering a clear overview of the denotational semantics of natural language quantifiers, some new results, and a first frontal assault on analysing the expressive power of natural languages. A substantial, intereresting, challenging work. * Edward Keenan, UCLA *
This book gives a comprehensive account of quantifiers in both natural and formal languages, drawing on both linguistics and model theory. It creates a number of paradigms, because nothing so general has been attempted before. Much of the material is new or has never appeared in book form, but the authors have taken enormous care to pitch their exposition at a level that non-specialists can follow. * Wilfrid Hodges, Queen Mary University of London *
