Correlativization and Degree Quantification in Spanish
This article develops an analysis of the syntactic and semantic properties of Spanish degree-correlative constructions. A movement analysis for the construction is defended, along the lines of recent proposals on correlatives cross-linguistically. At the semantic level, the wh-form is claimed to behave as an unselective operator heading a tripartite quantificational structure on degrees. Several empirical properties are claimed to follow from this characterization.
