Generics and atemporalwhen

Linguistics and Philosophy 3 (1):49 - 98 (1979)
Abstract
Beginning with analyses of English generic sentences and English plural indefinite noun phrases (e.g.dogs), we proceed to apply mechanisms there motivated to a characterization of atemporalwhen, a sense ofwhen which does not appear to involve time. Dealt with are such examples as Dogs are intelligent when they have blue eyes, and their relationships to examples like Dogs that have blue eyes are intelligent. The proposed treatment of atemporalwhen helps motivate the existence of a generic verb phrase operator in English, as well as the treatment of indefinite plural noun phrases as disguised definite descriptions.
