Abstract:

Building on a substantial earlier literature, the chapters in this volume
further advance knowledge and understanding of properties of the noun phrase
in English. The empirical material for the papers includes both historical and
present-day data, with the two often shedding light on each other in a process
of mutual illumination. The topics addressed are: the structure of nounless
NPs like "the poor" and "the obvious"; the article/zero alternation in
expressions like "go to (the) church"; developments in the early history of
adjective stacking; the semantics of N + clause units in present-day English;
the history of N + BE + clause constructions; and the decline of two anaphoric
NPs in Early Modern English. The volume will appeal to scholars working in
this area and will also help those interested in the general field of English
grammar to keep abreast of recent methods and results in NP-related work.
