Abstract
This paper is concerned with the differences in distribution and meaning
between the English PS any and its Korean equivalent amwu_ to. I first
argue that the former is an existential quantifier that must be in the scope
of a monotone decreasing expression, but the latter, a universal quantifier
that must take scope over a limited class of monotone decreasing expressions
of which negation is typical. I then propose a sketch that formally incorporates
these descriptive characterizations into their respective licensing conditions within the framework of Flexible Categorial Grammar. I finally show that the proposed analysis is capable of explaining some of the parametric differences between the two items.
