Quantity Modifier Modifies Quality

Quantity modifiers (QMs) convey more than a quantity constraint. For targets with positive (vs. negative) valence, high QMs such as “more than” and “almost” lead to more positive (vs. negative) judgments of quality-related attributes and low QMs such as “only” and “less than” lead to less positive (vs. negative) judgments.
