• pavelrudnev deposited Disjunct size, positive polarity, and the scope of disjunction in Russian on Humanities Commons 6 years, 2 months ago

    This paper claims that the scope properties of the Russian disjunction marker ili correlate with the phrasal vs. clausal nature of the disjunction: phrasal disjunction yields narrow scope whilst clausal disjunction yields wide scope. In so doing, we introduce novel empirical generalisations that are problematic for purely semantic analyses of PPI-disjunction.
