Book Description

Aug. 1 1995 0226092925 978-0226092928 1
In an attempt to address the theoretical gap between linguistics and philosophy, a group of semanticists, calling itself the Generic Group, has worked to develop a common view of genericity. Their research has resulted in this book, which consists of a substantive introduction and eleven original articles on important aspects of the interpretation of generic expressions. The introduction provides a clear overview of the issues and synthesizes the major analytical approaches to them. Taken together, the papers that follow reflect the current state of the art in the semantics of generics, and afford insight into various generic phenomena.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want to study generics, buy it May 21 2003
Format:Paperback
The title of this book makes a strong claim--that it is "the" book on generics. Luckily, the text backs up that claim. Beginning with a 100+ introduction to the topic by some of the biggest names in the field, the book continues with shorter articles on more specific topics. If you plan to do work in generics, "The Generic Book" is on your required reading list. One caveat--the authors assume a level of basic linguistics knowledge. If you have never studied semantics before, I suggest reading over an elementary text first, such as Heim and Kratzer's excellent "Semantics in Generative Grammar."
