Previous work on quantifier scope anotation focuses on scoping sentences with only two quantified noun phrases (NPs), where the quan- tifiers are restricted to a predefined list. It also ignores negation, modal/logical operators, and other sentential adverbials. We present a com- prehensive scope anotation scheme. We ano- tate the scope interaction betwen al scopal terms in the sentence from quantifiers to scopal adverbials, without puting any restriction on the number of scopal terms in a sentence. In ad- dition, al NPs, explicitly quantified or not, with no restriction on the type of quantification, are investigated for posible scope interactions.
