      Quantifiers in Language and Logic is a mature reflection of some 25 years of generalized quantifier theory, a field of research started by Barwise, Cooper, Keenan, Stavi, and others around , against the backdrop of Montague's seminal work. And in the best traditions of that interdisciplinary field, it still takes a joint effort by a prominent linguist and logician to get the true story of talking about and reasoning with quantifiers . Generalized quantifier theory is a central topic in logic with important applications in semantics of natural language. Recent work in the application field has led to new logical questions and new theoretical developements, showing that quantifier theory is a truly interdisciplinary field.

The game rules for quantifier phrases in natural languages are worth a second and a third look. One thing that is revealed by such a re-examination are the much greater differences between the logic of natural language and the usual treatments of formal logic .
