This project experimentally investigates if doubly-quantified sentences in Bangla, a verb-final language with scrambling, are ambiguous between Surface Scope (SS) and Inverse Scope (IS) readings. We report on a sentence-picture acceptability experiment. Results provide evidence that canonical SOV and scrambled OSV sentences allow both SS and IS. Moreover, we see a strong preference for IS in SOV order, showing the effect of a strongly distributive universal quantifier in the object position.
