This paper examines various discourse environments of Quantifier Shift (Q-Shift)---a postnominal quantifier construction in which a quantifier and its preceding referent form a unitary NP.
The present study shows that Q-Shift in Korean discourse appears typically in several types of discourse contexts: apposition, prescriptive itemization, exhaustive negation, presentational relative clauses. The Q-shift construction is shown to be the only quantifier construction in Korean discourse which allows a unique combination of the
