dialects), including definiteness/indefiniteness effects,
specificity/non-specificity, genericity/non-genericity,
uniqueness/non-uniqueness, identifiability/non-identifiability,
deicticity/non-deicticity, anaphoricity/non-anaphoricity, mass/count
criteria, eventuality and the definiteness requirement, wh-movement and the
defiteness effect, 'dou'-quantification, etc.
