This volume brings together scholars of diverse theoretical persuasions whoall share an interest in capturing the role that nominal determination andreference assignment play in the complicated interplay between thought,language and communication. The articles can be divided roughly into fivemain areas of concern: the conceptual level of determination; the emergenceand function of articles; their semantic contribution to nominalinterpretation; the morphology and syntax of determiners; and the interplayand contrasts between articles, demonstratives and possessives. Thus,linguistic and philosophical issues in the subject field of nominaldetermination are addressed at all interface levels between morphology,syntax, semantics and pragmatics. This volume shows that differenttheoretical frameworks may be brought fruitfully together in the effort toformulate new analyses of well-known problems, but also to raise newquestions and point to new areas which may prove in teresting topics forfuture research both in functional and formal paradigms.

Linguistic Field(s): Morphology                             Pragmatics                             Semantics                             Syntax
