Traditional approaches to quantifier scope typically need stipulation to exclude rea- dings that are unavailable to human under- standers. This paper shows that quantifier scope phenomena can be precisely charac- terized by a semantic representation cons- trained by surhce constituency, if the di- stinction between referential and quantifi- cational NPs is properly observed. A CCG implementation is described and compared to other approaches.
