<p><b>New page</b></p><div>'''Generalized Quantifier Theory''' is a logical semantic theory which studies the interpretation of noun phrases and determiners. The formal theory of generalized quantifiers already existed as a part of mathematical logic (Mostowski 1957) and it was implicit in [[Montague Grammar]] (Montague 1974), but it has been put to use in its full force in Barwise &amp; Cooper (1981) and Keenan &amp; Stavi (1986), as a framework for the investigation of universal constraints on quantification and inferential patterns concerning quantifiers. It has been applied to explain the distribution of [[negative polarity items]] and [[weak noun phrase]]s and [[strong noun phrase]]s. Within GQT there are two perspectives on noun phrase interpretation, which are formally equivalent. One perspective focuses on the interpretation of noun phrases as sets of sets (i.e. [[generalized quantifier]]s) which take a predicate as their argument; the other approach focuses on the interpretation of determiners as relations between sets. See [[determiner]].<br />
