    The distinction between a type and its tokens is a useful metaphysical distinction. In §1 it is explained what it is, and what it is not. Its importance and wide applicability in linguistics, philosophy, science and everyday life are briefly surveyed in §2. Whether types are universals is discussed in §3. §4 discusses some other suggestions for what types are, both generally and specifically. Is a type the sets of its tokens? What exactly is a word, a symphony, a species? (...)

  3. Linda Wetzel (2002). On Types and Words. Journal of Philosophical Research 27:239-265.
    Peirce illustrated the type-token distinction by means of the definite article: there is only one word type “the,” but there are likely to be about twenty tokens of it on this page. Not all tokens are inscriptions; some are sounds, whispered or shouted, and some are smoke signals. The type “the” is neither written ink nor spoken sound; it is an abstract object. Or consider the Grizzly Bear, Ursus arctos horribilis. At one time its U.S. range was most of the (...)

  8. Linda Wetzel (1990). Dummett's Criteria for Singular Terms. Mind 99 (394):239-254.
    In his excellent book Frege: Philosophy of Language, Michael Dummett proposes five criteria that are supposed to delimit formally the class of singular terms (in Frege's terminology, 'proper names'). I shall argue that Dummett's criteria, even as amended by Crispin Wright and Bob Hale, do not delimit the class of singular terms in English, that further refinements of the criteria probably will not help, and that in any event the criteria face other difficulties.
