Adopting a degree-based semantics account, many is decomposed into a gradable cardinality predicate and the positive operator POS. The different readings are argued to result from different scope of POS and association with focus. This improves on alternative accounts, which either employ more than one lexical entry for many or do not specify a compositional implementation.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Penka, Doris</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Penka, Doris</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>One many, many readings</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2018</dcterms:issued> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2020-01-13T11:25:51Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
