**SEMANTICS: **a property of a **determiner** D in
**Generalized Quantifier Theory**. A determiner D has the property of being left upward monotone if and
only if in a domain of entities E condition (i) holds.

(i) for all A,B,A' subset E: if D(A,B) and A subset A', then D(A',B)Left upward monotonicity can be tested as in (ii); as shown

(ii) a If some/at least two dogs walked, then some/at least two animals walked. b If all/exactly two dogs walked, then all/exactly two animals walked.Other terms are
