Item Summary

Title: Master Class: Elicitation and Documentation of Definiteness & Quantification
Authors: Jenks, Peter
Issue Date: 12 Mar 2015
Description: This class will survey semantic distinctions which have been claimed to exist for well-studied languages, including definiteness, specificity, weak versus strong quantification, and referential versus bound variable readings of pronouns. We will then examine the different ways that these distinctions are encoded in the languages of the world. Finally, we will introduce a number of syntactic and semantic diagnostics that will enable the documentarian to identify these different nominal interpretations both with elicitation and in texts.
