Bare and indefinite NPs in predicative position in French

Abstract : This paper is about the distinction between bare NPs and indefinite NPs in predicative position in French. We argue that the second are identificational statments, in which the indefinite is of type e, the copula is empty and in which the indefinite needs to be anchored to a context. Consequently, we argue that they are not definitional, differently from bare NP predication, which introduce definitory properties of the subject's aspects (tropes).
