Interpretations of Sentences without Expression of quantity in Effects of Perceptual Information and Grouping
Tetsuya Yasuda (Univ. of Tokyo), Harumi Kobayashi (Tokyo Denki Univ.) TL2022-19
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The sentence "There are rich students in our laboratory" may not specify how many are rich, but can be interpreted either as all (ALL) or only a few (SOME) of the students belonging to the laboratory (i.e., group) are rich. In this study, we manipulated the attributes (color and grouping) of the objects and used the sentence "There are people who have bags" to ask the participants the task of judging quantity. A factor of grouping (groups) was manipulated by types of costumes. The results were that 1) informativeness due to perceptual cues may not contribute much to the interpretation of the implicature. 2) The participants tended to choose the card as some implicature when the card consisted of the groups of same costumes. The study suggested that when each group can be judged to be easily comparable, the interpretations were guided by Grice’s maxims.
