Indefinite Determiner Doubling: Data and Methods

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review

Syntactic doubling, expressing a constituent twice (or more) when a single occurrence should suffice, is surprisingly common, especially where functional elements are concerned (Barbiers 2008:5). Some well-known examples include multiple negation/negative concord, found in many languages, and double definiteness, found in some Scandinavian languages. In this chapter, we focus on doubling of indefinite determiners in the Germanic languages, that is, on nominal expressions in which the indefinite article occurs more than once within the same DP (determiner phrase, i.e. nominal expression).
