The paper deals with discontinuous quantificational structures in Old English. It concludes that quantificational constructions in Old English are heterogeneous because they can result from movement, that is separation of the quantifier and the rest of the phrase, or base-generation when the separated nominal elements are generated in places in which they occur. Essentially, structures which display full morphological agreement result from movement. The movement types included in the paper are topicalization, scrambling, extraposition and NP (Noun Phrase) shift. By contrast, base-generated constructions do not show morphological agreement. Quantifiers in such structures are adverbial in nature.
