Sharvy's theory of definite descriptions revisited

Pacific Philosophical Quarterly 88 (2):160–180 (2007)
The paper revisits Sharvy's theory of plural definite descriptions. An alternative account of plural definite descriptions building on the ideas of plural quantification and non-distributive plural predication is developed. Finally, the alternative is extrapolated to account for generic uses of definite descriptions.
