||Indefinite descriptions like "a G" have received somewhat less attention than their definite cousins. Traditionally, these were taken to contribute a restricted existential claim (restricted by the overt descriptive material) to the the semantic content expressed by the utterance. More recently, however, many have noted that indefinite descriptions allow for a "specific" reading—that is, a reading on which they are used to talk about specific objects. This raises a question of semantic import parallel to that of how to account for "referential uses" of definite descriptions. Other outstanding questions regarding indefinite descriptions include how to account for their behavior in intensional contexts and whether what distinguishes them from definites is ultimately a matter of semantics or pragmatics.
