    ‘I'd say that conversational implicatures should be those that are generated in roughly Gricean fashion, and that not all of these are cancelable.’ ‘Overall, these findings indicate that children do not treat all scalar terms alike and, more importantly, that children's ability to derive scalar implicatures is affected by their awareness. the acquisition of implicature have exclusively considered the scalar type. However, whether these findings should generalise to non-scalar implicatures is a theoretically con-tested issue. The main difference between cases such as non-scalar (1) and scalar (2) is that, in the former case, the more informative alternative proposition can only be.

    CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Abstract. Scalar implicatures have been a subject of much debate concerning their place as part of either the grammatical computation of the semantics of a sentence or as post-compositional pragmatic reasoning. This paper describes three experiments addressing the semantic/pragmatic question of scalar implicatures. SCALAR IMPLICATURES IN ACQUISITION 3 (11) a. The bear won the race b.!The bear participated in the race The main argument for this recent approach comes from identified differences between the pre-suppositions associated with certain verbs like ‘win’ and the presuppositions associated with other.

    Origin. Scalar implicatures typically arise where the speaker qualifies or scales their statement with language that conveys to the listener an inference or implicature that indicates that the speaker had reasons not to use a stronger, more informative, term. For example, where a speaker uses the term "some" in the statement, "Some students can afford a new car.", the use of "some" gives rise. Scalar implicatures in language acquisition: Some evidence from Modern Greek Anna Papafragou University of Pennsylvania 1 Introduction Scalar implicatures typically arise in examples such as the following: (1) Some of the students passed the exam. t all of the students passed the exam. (2) You can choose an apple or an orange.

This study investigates the second language acquisition (L2A) of scalar implicatures (23 and 26), implicatures based on a range of quantifiers ordered in terms of. Our study investigates the second language (L2) acquisition of scalar implicatures some and all.

We set out to answer two research questions based on three theoretical accounts, the lexical, pragmatic and syntactic accounts. In an experiment we include English and Japanese native speakers, and intermediate and advanced Japanese L2 learners of by: 2.

Scalar Implicatures vs. Presuppositions – The view from Acquisition Cory Bill, Jacopo Romoli, Florian Schwarz, and Stephen Crain To appear in TOPOI, special issue “Presuppositions: Philosophy, Linguistics, and Psychology.” This paper reports an experimental investigation of presuppositions and scalar implicatures in language acquisition.

Our study investigates the second language (L2) acquisition of scalar implicatures some and all. We set out to answer two research questions based on three theoretical accounts, the lexical, pragmatic and syntactic accounts. In an experiment we include English and Japanese native speakers, and intermediate and advanced Japanese L2 learners of English.

In this article we present two sets of experiments designed to investigate the acquisition of scalar implicatures. Scalar implicatures arise in examples like Some professors are famous where the speaker's use of some typically indicates that s/he had reasons not to use a more informative term, e.g.

professors are famous therefore gives rise to the implicature that not all professors. The Acquisition of Scalar Implicatures Stefanie Röhrig Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz This paper describes a modified replication study of Noveck’s experiment () on the scalar terms must and might.

In the original study, Noveck conducted an experiment on the acquisition of the scalar terms must and might and the quantifier some. This study investigates the second language acquisition (L2A) of scalar implicatures (Grice,Horn, ), implicatures based on a range of quantifiers ordered in terms of informational strength: some most all.

This study examines effects of memory load on the processing of scalar implicature via a dual-task paradigm using reading span and self-paced reading. Results indicate that participants showed online sensitivity to underinformative sentences (e.g., Some birds have wings and beaks) at the end of the sentence.

This online sensitivity disappeared when participants were under increased memory load. to scalar implicatures. We discuss the implications of these findings for theories of plurality inferences, and for the acquisition of scalar inferences more generally.

Keywords: plurality, plurality inferences, scalar implicatures, language acquisition, bare plurals 1 Introduction Plurality inferences as scalar implicatures. This study investigates the second language acquisition (L2A) of scalar implicatures ([Grice, ] and), implicatures based on a range of quantifiers ordered in terms of informational strength.

This paper reports an experimental investigation of presuppositions and scalar implicatures in language acquisition. Recent proposals (Chemla ; Romoli) posit the same mechanisms for generating both types of inferences, in contrast to.

An implicature is something the speaker suggests or implies with an utterance, even though it is not literally atures can aid in communicating more efficiently than by explicitly saying everything we want to communicate. This phenomenon is part of pragmatics, a subdiscipline of philosopher H.

Grice coined the term in During acquisition, children must learn both the meanings of words and how to interpret them in context. For example, children must learn the logical semantics of the scalar quantifier some and its pragmatically enriched meaning: ‘some but not all’.

Some studies have shown that ‘scalar implicature’ – that some implies ‘some but not all’ – poses a challenge even to nine-year. Slabakova, ) have examined the acquisition of scalar implicatures (hereafter SIs). This paper will present a study on adult second language (L2) acquisition of SIs.

In order to investigate judgements of SIs we employ a task from Barner, Chow and Yang (). Barner et al. Our study investigates the second language acquisition of scalar implicatures some and all.

We set out to answer two research questions based on three theoretical accounts, the lexical, pragmatic. Hirschberg() concludes that any partial order can give rise to scalar implicatures: In sum, the relations that support scalar implicature — including those relations iden-tified previously in the literature as well as the orderings I have proposed above — turn out to be just the class of PARTIALLY ORDERED SETS, or POSETS.

2. Implicatures drawn from generalised and ad hoc scales Accounts of scalar implicature differ in the extent to which they posit a difference between generalised and particularised conversational implicatures (GCIs and PCIs respectively).

GCIs rely on the existence of a lexical scale of informativeness, such as. The acquisition of disjunction: Evidence for a grammatical view of scalar implicatures.
