Generic Sentences and Types of Judgments

Abstract : This paper investiagtes the correlation between the meaning of the plural indefinite 'des' and the plural definite 'les' in French and their ability to express different types of generic statements. It argues that the main feature that distinguishes these two items is the (non)-novelty, in a Heimian framework.
