Title: Definiteness
Written By: Christopher Lyons
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521368359
Series Title: Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

Definiteness is the concept expressed by definite articles such as "the",
and also by other expressions such as demonstratives ("this", "that") and
personal pronouns. This textbook surveys such expressions in the many
languages of the world, and also examines the theoretical literature on
this aspect of grammar, to establish what definiteness is and how languages
can express it.
