the quantifier 'each'
It is some stuff to understand the quantifier. In particular, as to quantifier floating there is a confusing problem that I've been stucked on.
A) I want each of the books to be on the table.
Since the quantifier each can be applied to the quantifier floating as shown below,
B) Each of the boys owns a glove. ----> The boys each own a glove.
It seems to be logical to think that the process in B can be applied to A so as to produce the below sentence.
A') I want the books each to be on the table.
So How do you look at A' sentence? Is it a correct use?
