Quantification is a topic which brings together linguistics, logic, and philosophy. Quantifiers are the essential tools with which, in language and logic, we refer to quantity of things or amount of stuff. In English they include such expressions as "no", "some", "all", "both", and "many". Stanley Peters and Dag Westerståhl present the definitive interdisciplinary exploration of how they work -- their syntax, semantics, and inferential role.
