QR Is Restrictor Sharing
Danny Fox and Kyle Johnson
1-16 (complete paper or proceedings contents)

Abstract

We argue that the operation of QR should be replaced by a condition that causes a quantifier and a definite determiner to share a restrictor. The quantifier and definite determiner are both silent, and their morphological expression is found as the head of the restrictor. This provides for an account of both Link (1984)'s hydras and Perlmutter and Ross (1970)'s cases of extraposed relatives with split antecedents.
