Abstract

The main body of the thesis is divided in three parts, each comprising
two chapters. In the first part, I address the notion of scope from
the perspective of linguistic economy, by discussing the drawbacks
of an economy-based account of scope, and then I put forward an
alternative account. In the second part, I apply a similar strategy,
this time, with respect to binding. In the third part, I explore the
theoretical consequences of the standard economy principles for two
theses concerning, respectively, the nature of complex demonstratives
and the purported logicality of natural language.
