Sample text

Finally, looking at a bound reading where the de®nite description is not part of the focus, we ®nd that, consonant with our predictions, there has to be someone of whom the description is true; otherwise, the sentence is false. (53) Clinton didn't give A MEDAL to the king of France, but A COLLECTION OF EARLY AMERICAN PAINTINGS. As its continuation with but ensures, in (53) the negation takes scope over the focused theme, but not over the rest of the sentence (ˆ bound reading). 38 Chapter 2 Unlike in the other examples we have seen, here the de®nite description ®nds itself outside the scope of the negation.

B: No, Sascha didn't visit MONTMARTRE, because he in fact didn't visit ANYTHING! He FELT SICK AND STAYED IN THE HOTEL ALL DAY. The ®rst sentence in (42B) states that it is not the case that some visit of Sascha yesterday was a visit of Montmartre. And, as the second sentence makes clear, this is so because Sascha did no sight-seeing at all. '' Focus in (43) does have an e¨ectÐas usual, it structures the event description, as a result of which the sentence is taken to be about Sascha's sight-seeing.

There is a problem with the example in (16), however. One could argue that in the second sentence the negative quanti®er in fact takes scope over the entire sentence, including the event operator, and that the reason we think that this sentence entails that there was singing has only to do with the content of the ®rst sentence, which explicitly states that a song was sung. There are examples that are immune to this kind of objection. In these examples a decreasing quanti®er unmistakably takes narrow scope and, in line with our prediction, these examples do indeed have backgrounded focal entailments.
