This book develops a unified account of expressions involving the
notions of "part" and "whole " in which principles of the
individuation of part structures play a central role. Moltmann
presents a range of new empirical generalizations with data from
English and a variety of other languages involving plurals, mass
nouns, adnominal and adverbial modifiers such as as a whole, together,
and alone, nominal and adverbial quanitfiers ranging over parts, and
expressions of completion such as completely and partly. She develops
a new theory of part structures which differs from traditional
mereological theories in that the notion of an integrated whole plays
a central role and in that the part structure of an entity is allowed
to vary across different situations, perspectives, and dimensions.
