This is the second of a two-volume selection of refereed and revised
papers, originally presented at the special workshop of the
international conference From NP to DP at the University of
Antwerp. Reflecting the stage of current research with respect to the
expression of possession in the noun phrase, it focusses on issues
such as alienable and inalienable possession, internal and external
syntax of possessors, interaction between determiners and possessors,
interpretation of possessors and typology of possessors. The papers,
preceded by an up-to-date overview and discussion of the most
important studies in the field, provide an excellent basis for
comparative analyses of possession in the noun phrase between a large
number of languages.
