Comparative Anaphora: comparing alternatives

Abstract


A common assumption in degree semantics is that there is a functionargument

Drawing on observations from comparatives without an overt standard, I argue for

reconsiderations of this assumption and offer a reanalysis of er, where it directly

compares to the alternative in the second dimension of meaning.
