Modal Comparisons: Two Dilettantes in Search of an ExpertThe Art and Craft of Semantics: A Festschrift for Irene Heim. (2014)
In this short squib, Kai von Fintel and I express our puzzlement over the role of the German comparative form “eher” in metalinguistic and modal comparisons. We can’t do this alone. We have data, we have observations, we have speculations, but we need you to tell us what to do with them. We want to sit down with you and work on this together.
