Abstract: We present a study on Italian children’s comprehension of the focus particles also and only, in which we show that different factors (such as age, trigger type and syntactic position) impact on children’s performance. We discuss these results in relation to the fact that also is an additive operator that asserts the prejacent and presupposes its alternatives, while only is an exclusive operator that asserts the denial of the alternatives and presupposes its prejacent.
