Quantification is everywhere in grammar, from syntax to pragmatics. Its acquisition has surprises: from ‘spreading’ (every applies both to dog and bone in Every dog has a bone) to implicature failure (some = not all) and distributivity (all vs. each). This volume offers fresh methodological and theoretical angles on the acquisition path for quantification, based on evidence from various languages
