Scope ambiguity in Hungarian
University of Calgary
The study of semantics seeks to determine, among other things, the meaning of logical words such as connectives, quantifiers and negatives. The introduction of more than one quantifier into a sentence results in a phenomenon in most languages called scope ambiguity. This means that the sentence can have more than one interpretation with respect to the scope of the quantifiers, i.e. the range of the effect of the quantifiers. Fodor (1977:185) notes that a quantifier can have more that one interpretation when it co-occurs with another quantifier.
