Russell: The Journal of Bertrand Russell Studies 13 (1):36-47 (1993)
The principal question asked in this paper is: in the case of attributive usage, is the definite description to be analyzed as Russell said or is it to be treated as a referring expression, functioning semantically as a proper name? It answers by defending the former alternative.
