# Floating Quantifier "Each" And Its Position.

•  0
I and others looked for floating quantifiers,but we found information only about "all".I,in fact found only one source which isn't detailed.
I read in one of PDFs that "each" can come before a non-finite clause.
I taught the girls each to play the piano.
Could you please provide us with more information about that subject or answer these below questions ?

1-Are there any other positions of "each" in such case ?
2-Could we put "each" between the infinitive ?

I taught the girls to each play the piano.
If you want to write correct English, choose one of these:

I taught each girl to play the piano.
I taught each of the girls to play the piano.
I taught both [of the] girls to play the piano.

The article before "piano" is often dropped.

Hi,
Please,does it mean that the only position of "each" is before the "infinitive" whatever is the verb ?
What about if the verb is "to be" ,is it the same ?
Thanks

It means that each is before the noun it modifies: each girl.

Sorry again,could you please have a look at this : page 9 of http://pages.uoregon.edu/tpayne/UEG/UEG-additionalreading-ch10-Qfloat.pdf
Th position of each in this sentence is after the noun it modifies and before the infinitive:
I taught the girls each to play the piano.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
everlastinghopeI taught the girls each to play the piano.
I wouldn't say that. I would say:

I taught each girl to play the piano.
I taught each of the girls to play the piano.

Each can be at the end in a sentence like this:
I gave the girls five euros each.

Ok,thanks again,I got it.So,I bet that the PDF I read about the usage of each is wrong,isn't it ?.
Many thanks indeed,I looked for that usage alot but didn't find anything except that PDF.
All my best regards.
