The Definiteness Effect: Semantics or Pragmatics? [Book Review]

Natural Language Semantics 11 (2):187-216 (2003)
In this paper I propose and defend a semantically based account of the distribution of DPs in existential there-sentences in English in opposition to the pragmatic account proposed in Zucchi (1995). The two analyses share many features, making it possible to study variation along the semantics/pragmatics dimension while holding the rest constant
