A Multimodal Type Logical Grammar Analysis of Japanese: Word Order and Quantifier Scope
This paper presents an analysis of the interaction of scrambling and quantifier scope in Japanese, based on multimodal type logical grammar [5,6]. In developing the grammar of the language, we will make use of several modes. In particular, we will exploit the continuation mode as used in [2,7]. The concept deals with computational side effects and the evaluation order. After establishing the analysis of simple quantifier cases, we also discuss some morphologically related phenomena such as focus and split-QP construction [8,9], and show how they can be dealt with in our system.
