|Abstract||In this talk, I ﬁrst systematize the analogies and complete the picture in some corners. Then, I formally relate the three constructions, and I derive their properties from a single operator. Previous analyses were not designed to account for all three constructions at the same time. Accordingly, I not only assess how well they generalize beyond their intended purpose, but I also evaluate them in their own right. Even so, this analysis improves on previous accounts in several ways. Although I will not focus on this in the talk, the analysis of distributive quantiﬁcation is compatible with more general analyses of cumulative and collective quantiﬁcation such as Landman (2000).|
