Book Information


Title: Détermination et Formalisation
Edited By: Irene Baron
Xavier Blanco
Zoé Gavriilidou
Series Title: Lingvisticæ Investigationes Supplementa 23

The contributions brought together in this volume represent the state-of-the-art in the study of determiners, which finds itself in the intersection of such fields as theoretical linguistics, computational linguistics, and logic. The articles provide original viewpoints on determination, and bring new perspectives to classic problems. They concern mainly French, but also a large set of other
European languages. They center on the lexical properties of determiners in combinations. The reported research is essentially contrastive and oriented to translation and applied technological issues.
