AbstractAlthough not intended as such, Lucas Champollion’s paper, “Stratified reference: The common core of distributivity, aspect, and measurement,” could be read as a proposal about what children have to learn, at least in part, about measurement, pluralities, and quantification in natural language, and what the path of acquisition might look like for phenomena associated with these topics in both the verbal and nominal domain. Here, I extend his proposal to the acquisition of universal quantification, and specifically differences among "all" and "each".
