抄録: This paper discusses the mechanism of quantifier floating. Following the stranding analysis, I maintain that a floating quantifier forms an underlying constituent together with the DP it modifies in its base position, i.e. [Spec, VP]. However, I claim that the underlying structure is a partitive construction such as [Q-of-DP], not [Q-DP]. Although numeral/existential quantifiers can also be found in partitive constructions, these quantifiers cannot float. This behavioral difference between universal quantifiers and numeral/existential quantifiers is attributed to their structural differences : a universal quantifier is the head of the partitive structure while the preposition of projects maximally in the partitive construction with numeral/existential quantifiers.
