	 THE REFERENTIAL PROPERTIES OF CHINESE NOUN PHRASE


This collection of ten papers covers a number of topics related to the 
question: how nouns in Chinese, devoid of articles, are nevertheless able
to express definiteness, specificity, genericity, uniqueness, deicticity, 
etc. as easily and precisely as in other languages. The authors address,
in syntactic, semantic and pragmatic approaches, issues that have long 
puzzled linguists such as: why the Chinese counterpart of a simple sentence
like "a man came yesterday" is unacceptable.
