Abstract:

This book provides an up-to-date introduction to the study of generics and
pursues the enterprise of the influential Generic Book edited by Gregory
Carlson and Jeffry Pelletier, which was published in 1995. Genericity is a key
notion in the study of human cognition as it reveals our capacity to organize
our perceived reality into classes and to describe regularities. The generic
can be expressed at the level of a word or phrase (ie the potato in The Irish
economy became dependent upon the potato) or an entire sentence (eg in John
smokes a cigar after dinner, the generic aspect is a property of the
expression, rather than any single word or phrase within it). This book
gathers new work from senior and young researchers to reconsider the notion of
genericity, examining the distinct contributions made by the determiner phrase
(eg the notions of kind/individual) and the verbal predicate (eg the notions
of permanency, disposition, ability, habituality, and plurality). Finally, in
connection with the whole sentence, the analytic/synthetic distinction is
discussed as well as the notion of normality. The book will appeal to both
students and scholars in linguistics, philosophy and cognitive science
