Title: Korean Free Choice items and some implications for the theory of Free Choice
Date : January 18, 2002, 16:00--18:30
Place : Kobe Shoin Women's University, Room 1421, second floor of Bldg 14

In this talk I consider certain Korean Free-Choice items both from an interpretive and a morphological point of view. For items that seem ambiguous we try to establish the exact ambiguity and tease apart the contextual properties that condition the various readings. We pay particular attention to the "distinction" between universality and free choice and consider its implications for the theory of free choice and especially recent proposals such as Giannakidou (2001), Horn (2001) which attempt to divorce universal quantification from free choice completely.
