dialects), including definiteness/indefiniteness effects,
specificity/non-specificity, genericity/non-genericity,
uniqueness/non-uniqueness, identifiability/non-identifiability,
deicticity/non-deicticity, anaphoricity/non-anaphoricity, mass/count
criteria, eventuality and the definiteness requirement, wh-movement and
the definiteness effect, 'dou'-quantification, etc.

Symposium. The abstract must include a short, 10 line, summary clearly
indicating subject matter, general framework, conclusion, and major
references. Each speaker will have 20 minutes for presentation followed by
