dc.description.abstract Certain quantifiers have been suggested to be interveners in wh-questions and in NPI-licensing environments. The current study investigates NPI-licensing in German and presents evidence from acceptability judgments and self-paced reading which indicates that certain quantifiers indeed give rise to “intervention effects”. Surprisingly, however, the same effect was found in minimally different structures where the NPI was replaced by a non-NPI. We argue that these effects stem from scope incompatibilities of certain semantic operators and are independent of NPI-licensing. en
