Champollion, Lucas. 2014. "Reply to Roger Schwarzschild on event semantics"

[Full paper on lingbuzz]

Abstract:  I reply to various aspects of Roger Schwarzschild’s note "Distributivity, negation and quantification in event semantics: Recent work by L. Champollion." Section 2 shows that sum distributivity as used here and here is a notational variant of a certain kind of distributivity that uses universal quantifiers and existential quantification over covers. Section 3 considers whether the treatment of "each" here is compatible with the event semantic framework here. Section 4 attempts to clarify the relation between the accounts of for-adverbials here and here and answers some questions raised by Schwarzschild. Section 5 amends the treatment of adnominal "each" here, Version 2 (6/9/14), accepts that its scope includes the verb, and considers the consequences for the syntactic structure of double object constructions and prepositional datives.

Keywords:  events, distributivity, d operator, star operator, covers, quantifiers, for-adverbials, adverbial each, adnominal each, double object constructions, prepositional datives
