    Not Even.Chris Collins - 2016 - Natural Language Semantics 24 (4):291-303.
    :This paper proposes an analysis of the semantics of even that is consistent with the assumptions about the syntax and semantics of negation in Collins and Postal. First, I review the distribution of negation, showing how negation may modify quantificational expressions where it gives rise to scope freezing effects. Second, I discuss the fact that even-phrases can be modified by negation, as in Not even John is there. On the basis of this fact, I argue that even is a quantifier. (...)

    A Scope Freezing Effect with Negated Quantifier Phrases.Chris Collins - 2017 - Natural Language Semantics 25 (4):315-327.
    I document a scope freezing effect found with negated quantifier phrases ). In a sentence with a negated quantifier phrase of the form [NEG DP1], no quantifier phrase DP2 can take scope between NEG and DP1. I show how this scope freezing effect can be explained in terms of the analysis of negated quantifier phrases given in Collins and Postal and Collins.

    Family Values and Same-Sex Marriage: Reconciliation Via Alain Locke's Value Theory.Christopher J. Collins - 2009 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 16 (1):55-65.
    Alain Locke, an often neglected classical American Pragmatist, developed a pluralistic value theory as an antidote to the "value absolutism" he considered the root cause of social conflict. Values, for Locke, are not immutable features of a transcendent reality, but rather emerge from human functional attitudes, or what he calls "feeling-modes." However incommensurable the contextualized values of diverse cultures may appear, they can always be traced back to common modes of valuing. Recognizing the common character of our human faculty of (...)

  6. Smuggling in Syntax.Adriana Belletti & Chris Collins (eds.) - 2020 - New York: Oxford University Press.
    One of the fundamental properties of human language is movement, where a constituent moves from one position in a sentence to another position. Syntactic theory has long been concerned with properties of movement, including locality restrictions. This work investigates how different movement operations interact with one another, focussing on the special case of smuggling. The contributions in this volume each describe different areas where smuggling derivations play a role, including passives, causatives, adverb placement, the dative alternation, the placement of measure (...)

    Variability in the Sizes of Brain Parts.Jon H. Kaas & Christine E. Collins - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (2):288-290.
    Brain parts can scale independently of the whole brain, and an example is given to point out that the authors underestimate variation that can exist in brains of equal size.

    Outer negation of universal quantifier phrases.Chris Collins - 2020 - Linguistics and Philosophy 43 (3):233-246.
    This paper discusses two ways of negating DP quantifier phrases. In one way, NEG modifies the quantifier D directly with the structure [[NEG D] NP]. In the other way, NEG modifies the whole DP with the structure [NEG DP]. I give evidence based on negative polarity items that negated universal quantifier phrases like not every student involve outer negation.
