In this paper, I want to contribute to understanding and improving on Keenan'sintriguing equivalence result about reducible type < 2 > quantifiers (Keenan, 1992).I give an alternative proof of his result which generalizes to type < 2 > quantifiers, andI show how the reduction of a reducible type < 2 > quantifier to (the composition of) ntype < n > quantifiers can be effected.
