Rethinking the Category 'Determiner'
Spangler, Wayne E.
Linguistics, 143, 61-73, Jan 1 75
The 'determiner' category was originally set up by structuralists for identifying nouns. The rewrite rule for 'determiners' in transformational generative grammar is inadequate for showing correspondences between type and token. An appraisal of quantity terms might eliminate the concept of the 'determiner,' and replace that category with one of counting and quantity terms. (TL)
