From the website: “While every language can express definiteness, indefiniteness and genericity, the morpho-syntactic encoding of these notions varies considerably. This workshop is part of a larger project that provides concrete diagnostics for determining the interpretation of noun phrases which lack overt markers of (in)definiteness.”
