Meeting Description:

''Specificity and the evolution/emergence of nominal determination
systems in Romance''

The workshop discusses specificity in Romance languages, in particular
from a diachronic point of view. Romance languages have
grammaticalized specificity in a variety of ways. Investigation into
the the synchronic variation as well as into the diachronic
development of determiner system will yield more insights into the
interaction between the semantics of specificity (and other referential
categories) and the morpho-syntax of the languages under
investigation.
