Part of the answer refers to GPT, GPT_Pro for better problem solving
Quantifiers expansion and contraction is a relatively common phenomenon that can help linguists better understand language change, It can also help us better understand the structure and mechanisms of language. Quantifier expansion refers to the emergence of new quantifiers in the language, such as "a lot of" in English, while quantifier contraction refers to the change of existing quantifiers to form new quantifiers, such as "lots of" in English.

quantifier expansion is a very common phenomenon, which can occur in many ways, the most common of which is to form compound words with other quantifiers or quantifiers, such as "a lot of" and "lots of" in English. In addition, quantifiers can be expanded in other ways, such as by syntactic change, literal change, ideographic change and morphological change.

quantifier contraction is also a common phenomenon, which often results from the combination of multiple quantifiers, ideographic extension, morphological simplification and syntactic change. For example, the English word "lots of" derived from "a lot of" is a prime example. At the same time, new quantifiers will be formed due to different changes in ideography, morphology and syntax.

In a word, quantifier expansion and contraction are very common phenomena, which constantly make language change. Therefore, it is necessary to understand quantifier expansion and contraction for learning and understanding a language.
