The chapter contains a brief overview of the main arguments in favor of the hypothesis that indefinite DPs are neither referential nor quantificational expressions, but rather a third type of DP. We then present the various analyses that can be found in the formal semantics literature over the past 30 years, which treat indefinite DPs as free variables, choice functions, Skolem terms or properties. We then attempt to define the main semantic properties of indefinite DPs and finally we present the interpretation problems raised by this class of DPs. More... »

    24 schema:description The chapter contains a brief overview of the main arguments in favor of the hypothesis that indefinite DPs are neither referential nor quantificational expressions, but rather a third type of DP. We then present the various analyses that can be found in the formal semantics literature over the past 30 years, which treat indefinite DPs as free variables, choice functions, Skolem terms or properties. We then attempt to define the main semantic properties of indefinite DPs and finally we present the interpretation problems raised by this class of DPs.
