- State-of-the-Article--
Helen de Hoop on Partitivity
"[T]he main function of partitive elements is to make certain sets or
entities accessible for quantification. In the case of ordinary partitives
this process involves restricted or contextually bounded sets whereas in
the case of other types of partitives (pseudopartitives, faded partitives,
partitive case) the set or semantic entity that has to be made available
for quantification is unrestricted or unbounded."

- Column--
Elan Dresher: 
Noch Einmal Comparative Germanic: A Tale of Two Journals
"It is based on a premise that would still strike many nonlinguists as
incredible: the idea that small differences between languages are not just
accidents of history or culture, but are connected by universal principles
to other small, seemingly insignificant, differences."
