A notorious feature of plural universal quantification in Spanish is that the universal determiner demands a complex NP as argument. This syntactic complication, however, has no semantic consequences. For speakers of Spanish, modulo a restriction to distributive predicates, both types of quantification are indistinguishable. Taking as starting point a recursive definition of distributive predicates suggested by Van Benthem and adopted by Hoeksema, we simulate within the framework of the generalised quantifier view of quantification the the equivalence judgement just referred to.
